Forecasting space weather

Solar flares and other solar storms can cause power cuts, damage electronics and even disrupt GPS signals. So understanding and predicting ‘space weather’ has become as important as forecasting weather on Earth. This is the job of Dr. Lisa Baddeley, a space physicist at the University Centre in Svalbard, Norway – the most northerly university in the world. Dr Baddeley works at a facility called EISCAT, which uses several giant radar dishes to study the interaction between the solar wind and the Earth’s magnetic field, or magnetosphere.
