CLaSP Professor and Research Team Author Paper on Anthropogenic Space Weather

Recently, Climate & Space Professor Tamas Gombosi and a team of senior researchers authored a paper titled “Anthropogenic Space Weather,” an extensive review of anthropogenic space weather phenomena that focuses on the physics and impacts of high altitude nuclear explosions and associated electromagnetic pulses (EMP).  

The review was part of a project sponsored by the International Space Science Institute (ISSI) in Bern, Switzerland. This past June, Professor Gombosi gave a presentation titled “High-altitude nuclear explosions” during the Anthropogenic Space Weather Effects section of the summer ISSI Workshop on the Scientific Foundations of Space Weather that formed the basis of the recently completed extensive review.

The paper will be published in a forthcoming ISSI book titled “Scientific Foundations of Space Weather,” as part of an ongoing series of publications. In addition, the paper is being considered for inclusion in Space Science Reviews, a peer-reviewed journal.

An early version of the paper has just been published at arXiv (“archive”) an online repository of scientific papers in the fields of mathematics, physics, and astronomy, among others. ‚Äč
