Like Earth, space is a place of potentially violent storms, transferring energy from the solar wind into disturbances in our planet's atmosphere and space environment. These storms have the potential to cause disruptions and failures of networked systems around the world. In this discussion moderated by U-M College of Engineering Associate Dean for Research Eric Michielssen, we hear from Climate & Space Department Chair Prof. Tuija Pulkkinen, and Climate & Space Prof. Chris Ruf about the coming global storms and what Michigan Engineering is doing to better help warn and protect people against their risks.
