Welcome to the Space Weather research group at the University of Alcala

SWE major research goal: to accurately forecast local ground geomagnetic disturbances from solar observations. This goal will be achieved through the CARRINGTON project funded by the Spanish Government under the call on Excellent Science (AYA2016-80881-P). This project has three major complementary objectives: (1) to discover reliably the solar precursors associated to the interplanetary features that trigger the large disturbances on ground; (2) to include in the analysis of large hazardous geomagnetic disturbances those with a local character, which can only be monitored with high-resolution local magnetic indices, and (3) to develop solar monitoring tools and disturbance models to be implemented in the Spanish Space Weather Service.
