Space Weather Enterprise Activities and Reports

The space weather community is well-represented within the Committee on Space Weather of the Scientific and Technological Activities Commission (STAC).  This committee has hosted over ten years’ worth of scientific discussions at the Conference on Space Weather held every year at the AMS Annual Meeting.  As the space weather community has evolved, there has been keen interest in developing a “space weather enterprise” in much the same manner as the “terrestrial” weather enterprise has developed.  In particular, a strong interest in conducting effective communications between the government, commercial and academic sectors led to the creation of a teamed effort between the AMS Commission on the Weather, Water and Climate Enterprise (CWWCE) and the STAC.  A series of events have taken place, and the meeting summaries are contained under the following links.
