ABSTRACT
Space weather can have a great effect on Earth's climate. Predicting the impact of space environment disturbances on Earth presents a challenge to scientists. The authors present the ExaScience Lab's efforts, which use exascale computing and new visualization tools to predict the arrival and impact of space events on Earth.
