Space Weather Research, Education and Development Initiative

SW REDI Bootcamp

The foundation of this unique two-week intensive camp/course includes the in-house Integrated Space Weather Analysis system (iSWA; http://iswa.gsfc.nasa.gov), space environment models installed at the CCMC, and the operational experience of the SWRC team (http://swrc.gsfc.nasa.gov). While the camp/course is mainly geared towards those motivated undergraduate students who either seek to be entry level space weather forecasters or those who seek to perform space weather related research to fulfill academic requirements, it is also appropriate for scientists and others new to space weather who seek a global perspective of space weather, as well as those aiming to broaden their research topics.
