Focused Space Weather Strategy for Securing Earth, and Human Exploration of the Moon and Mars
This white paper recognizes gaps in observations that will, when addressed, much improve solar radiation hazard and geomagnetic storm forecasting.
Radiation forecasting depends on observations of the entire “Solar Radiation Hemisphere” that we will define. Mars exploration needs strategic placement of radiation-relevant observations.
We also suggest an orbital solution that will improve geomagnetic storm forecasting through improved in situ and solar/heliospheric remote sensing.
