Space climate: Storm in orbit

Clima Espacial - NEI 2021

The Sun, that quiet disc in the blue sky, is sometimes the source of extreme events that menace our highly technological society. IA researchers answer questions in a live session dedicated to space climate.

Teresa Barata and Ricardo Gafeira, researchers at Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (IA) and Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade de Coimbra (FCTUC), offer an overview (in Portuguese) of what is being done, in Portugal and abroad, in the forecast of solar activity and the mitigation of its human and economic impacts.

Watch this and other videos at IA’s channel on YouTube.

Activity within the programme of the European Researchers’ Night 2021.
