Who We Are
CISM, the Center for Integrated Space Weather Modeling, is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Science and Technology Center (STC). CISM formally began operations in August 2002.
To understand our dynamic sun-earth system and how it affects life and society.
To create a physics-based numerical simulation model that describes the space environment from the Sun to the Earth.
THE USES OF SPACE WEATHER MODELING
- A scientific tool for increased understanding of the complex space environment.
- A specification and forecast tool for space weather prediction.
- An educational tool for teaching about the space environment.
