NSF Science Nation: Space Weather at CLaSP

This Science Nation video examines the NSF-funded research led by U-M Climate & Space scientists to forecast space weather and help protect the power grid. The team, professor Tamas Gombosi, research professors Ward Manchester and Gabor Toth, and research scientist Dan Welling, are taking a multidisciplinary approach to developing next-generation space weather modeling tools, with the goal of a five-day forecast capability.
