A day in the life of a space weather advisor
Année de publication
What comes to mind when you think about the Met Office? Is it the TV weather presenters, the aviation meteorologists at airports, or perhaps the meteorologists working in Exeter, who provide weather forecasts and services for our wide range of customers? Do you think about space weather forecasting? When I first joined the Met Office as a meteorologist my job was, perhaps unsurprisingly, to forecast the weather. I was responsible for monitoring the weather and forecasting how it would affect our diverse range of customers - from the public to private companies, emergency responders and airports. However, in 2012 all of that dramatically changed when I moved into the Met Office's Hazard Centre to join a newly‐formed team of space weather advisors. I would like to share with you a glimpse of what we do and how we do it: all just another day in the life of a space weather advisor.
