Title: ESWW8 - Advances in GIC Research and Effects Mitigation: A Report from a Workshop at European Space Weather Week 2011
Authors: THOMSON, A. (BGS); GLOVER, A. (ESA); WIK, M. (NEUROSPACE)
Abstract: A one-day session and workshop was held on the subject of Geomagnetically Induced Currents (GIC) in electrical power networks at the 8th European Space Weather Week, in Namur, Belgium, on 30th November 2011. We describe the questions that were posed at the workshop and summarise the outcomes of the discussions. Among the conclusions reached were the need for improved Sun to Earth numerical models and the need for continued national and international support for space weather monitoring missions and ground networks of instruments. It was also concluded that there was much scope for improved national and international responses to space weather warnings and the need for collaboration between scientists, industry and governments to achieve this. 1.
