Space weather from explosions on the Sun: how bad could it be? View all abstracts by submitter

Karel Schrijver   Submitted: 2014-06-09 18:12

How does one find out how severe extreme space weather can be? In this concise report we review the recent scientific literature on that topic, combining terrestrial, lunar, and stellar data. We find that solar flares, energetic particle storms, and geomagnetic disturbances can all be more intense than modern technology has experienced: flares could be hundreds of times more energetic, particle storms a few times more intense, and geomagnetic storms may exceed the strongest on record by a moderate factor. This publication summarizes the significant progress that has been made recently on establishing the statistics of the worst space weather, and that there is more data available that can be used to improve upon that.
