The COMESEP alert system provides notifications for the space weather community. To achieve this, the system relies on both models and data, the latter including near real-time data as well as historical data. The system consists of several interconnected tools that work together to analyse data and automatically provide alerts for geomagnetic storms and solar energetic particle radiation storms.
Geomagnetic and SEP radiation storm alerts are based on the COMESEP definition of risk. The system is triggered by different solar phenomena such as coronal mass ejections and solar flares. After the automatic detection in solar data of any of these transients, the different modules of the system communicate in order to exchange information. Overall the system produces a series of coherent alerts that are then displayed online.
An extensive set of help pages is available, including background material, as well as information on the tools that are integrated in the system:
The COMESEP alert system uses recent web technology. Therefore you need to have an up-to-date browser to use it. The application has been tested in Safari 6.0.5, Chrome 29, Firefox 28 and Internet Explorer 11.
