Space Physics

Space Weather studies the environmental dynamics of "geospace": the active (and sometimes stormy) region above the Earth's lower atmosphere including the ionosphere (which often reflects AM radio waves back to Earth) and the magnetosphere (home of the Van Allen radiation belts and the environment of many spacecraft -- including the numerous geosynchronous satellites used for communications and other applications.) The following list gives active links to information about space weather and associated fields of scientific research.
If you have a link you would like to see added, or your find a broken link which needs to be fixed, please e-mail

If you find that any of the listed links have moved or are no longer functional, please contact one of the maintainers listed below. Also, please contact us if you have an appropriate link to add. We've received several e-mails describing this list as a "great resource." With your help and contributions we hope to maintain and even improve the quality of this service.
