Tuesday 15th March.  We have a guest speaker Professor Rami Qahwaji FHEA CEng FIET

Professor Rami Qahwaji FHEA CEng FIET, Professor of Visual Computing at the University of Bradford will present a talk entitled "Space Weather and the Pursuit of Solar Storms" 

Space weather is an emerging discipline that studies solar activities and solar storms and their possible impact on Human's life and technology. Space weather is becoming increasingly important because we rely more and more on communications and power systems, both of which are vulnerable to solar activities. In this talk we will explore space weather and talk about our work, in collaboration with ESA and NASA, on the use of satellite imaging, artificial intelligence and solar physics to monitor solar activities and predict if significant solar storms are likely to occur.
