IP060: SCAR Lecture: Space Weather and its Effects

by Louis J. Lanzerotti

Antarctica is not only observed in its own right. It is also a platform for the scientific observation of the effects on the Earth of emanations from the Sun, which produce 'weather' in space that can harm electrically based technologies. These interactions are the focus of SCAR's ICESTAR project, a bipolar research effort to ascertain the extent to which solar-terrestrial interactions are conjugate (i.e. occur simultaneously) in the northern and southern hemispheres, and are predictable.
