Post-SWIC - April 25

During the SWIC, trainees get the basics of Space Weather for operators, know about the potential impact on military and civilian technology and understand the Space Weather products provided by Space Weather institutes. They are able to read and understand the Ursigram (SIDC) and Forecast Discussion (SWPC).

In a next step, during a Post-SWIC, the translation of the SWIC content to products and services for the end-user of the participating organisations should be made. 

In this respect, the Joint Meteorological Group of the Netherlands organises a Post-SWIC open for all registered participants of the SWIC.

The lectures will be given by Maj. drs. Willem-Pieter van der Laan, head of MTO/SME Space Weather.

Date and time
