Space weather research at the DLR site in Neustrelitz

Au­ro­ra Bo­re­alis or north­ern lights as seen from the In­ter­na­tion­al Space Sta­tion ISS, is prob­a­bly the best-known phe­nomenon of space weath­er and is the sub­ject of re­search at the new In­sti­tute for So­lar-Ter­res­tri­al Physics.

The Institute for Solar-Terrestrial Physics scientific deals with the state and dynamics of the Ionosphere-Thermosphere-Magnetosphere System (ITM) and it´s driving by the Sun and by the lower and middle atmosphere. Within this research field, the Institute for Solar-Terrestrial Physics will focus on the study of Space Weather.
