Forum and Working Team Goals
International Forum for Space Weather Capabilities Assessment

Summary of Goals:
 (1) To define metrics to assess the current state of space weather modeling capabilities from the perspective of:
      ○  end-users
      ○  science for space weather
 (2) Develop a process to capture science progress in first principles models that feed into operations.

This international community-wide forum is brings together space environment experts, model and application developers, data providers, forecasters and end-users of space weather products and services to

  • establish internationally recognized metrics and benchmarks that are meaningful and informative to end-users, developers, and decision makers;
  • evaluate the current state of space environment models, applications and forecasting techniques;
  • facilitate communications, understanding and partnerships between forecasters and researchers;
  • address challenges in data-model comparison, including data quality and availability, uncertainties and sensitivities to external drivers, internal parameters and assumptions;
  • identify a path for evaluation and accelerated incorporation of scientific ideas with potential to improve forecasting into space weather applications;
  • quantify and track progress over time and communicate it to end-users and the community;
  • facilitate further progress.
