"The most exciting part for me is to see something go from science to real, potential operational impact" Comberiate said
Research led by the University of Dundee has identified a new population of solar clouds – the ` "space weather’ that is generated by the Sun and thrown across the solar system."
"I am looking forward to seeing the results from the collaboration between Sweden and Canada with the common goal of strengthening our capacity to reduce risk and respond to challenges ahead,” Lindberg said."
BAS co-author Dr Mark Clilverd says, "This is an exciting piece of research because it shows us a key part of the chain-reaction of how electrons affect ozone at higher latitudes and can ultimately affect weather systems – a link that we didn't truly understand before. It could contribute to data for weather forecasting, for instance to show us when Europe is likely to experience an especially cold winter."
