Space Weather Nowcasts at CAR

Space weather is fast becoming a global concern. Space weather refers to the conditions in space environment that have impact on space-dependent technological systems. Today's world is driven by space technology. Communication-, satellite-, navigational- , aviation-, and Information technologies, are some of the mostly patronized space-dependent technologies in the world today. Millions of Nigerians have continued to patronize space-dependent technologies whose functionality and efficiency are prone to space weather hazards. The Centre for Atmospheric Research has 'Space Weather' as one of her main agenda and has hereby set up a daily space weather nowcasts for the benefits of the public and in particular patrons of space technology dependent systems/ operations. This platform starting from 16th January 2018 shall present daily space weather nowcasts for global usage.
