The environmental conditions in the ionosphere, also known as space weather, are mainly influenced by solar activity. Especially during solar winds and storms, charged particles can pose a threat to technical infrastructure in orbit and even on Earth. But even in milder forms, it can affect the communication with satellites and thereby reduce the accuracy of global navigation satellite systems such as Galileo and GPS.
Researchers are modelling space weather by combining ground- and space-based measurements into large and complex multi-dimensional models to better understand its dynamics. In this project, we manage the large data generated by these models, ensure fast access and visualize it interactively in the browser. Expert users can freely explore the data and perform targeted analyses to investigate the behavior and effects of space weather.
