Solar-terrestrial predictions workshop held in Canada



Scientists from solar, magnetospheric, and ionospheric physics and geomagnetism, as well as forecasters of solar-terrestrial conditions and users affected by the solar-terrestrial environment attended the Solar-Terrestrial Prediction Workshop, held from May 18 to 22, 1992, in Ottawa, Canada. More than 150 scientists from seventeen countries came together to communicate and exchange their knowledge and expertise on the forecasting of solar-terrestrial conditions.

This meeting was the fourth in a series organized by the International Ursigram and World Service (IUWDS), a joint service of the Union Radio Scientifique Internationale (URSI), the International Astronomical Union (IAU), and the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG). The local organizer of the workshop was the Ottawa Regional Warning Center, a component of the Geological Survey of Canada.
