“Space Weather”


Meteorological Information Center, Central Weather Bureau

For your daily life, you could feel wind, sunshine, rainfall, lightening, etc., which are so called ‘weather'. In the space environment, above 100 km altitude from earth surface, there are also phenomena with day-to-day variation. Due to these are similar as weather in the space, scientist call them 'space weather'. This term refers to all variable physical parameter and conditions from the Sun to the entire space environment, such as solar wind, solar radiation, charged particles density, high-energy particles, and magnetic fields. In the early stage, researchers studied their variations and interactions with the Earth's magnetosphere, ionosphere, and thermosphere. Recently, more and more studies point out that rapidly changing space weather might make severe influences for our daily life. Therefore, scientists pay more attentions to understand influences of space weather and try to prevent their destructions.


Dr. I-Te Lee is a researcher at the Meteorological Information Center of Central Weather Bureau (CWB) in Taiwan. Dr. Lee received his M. S. and Ph. D. from the Institute of Space Science, National Central University, Taiwan in 2008 and 2013, respectively. His research interest is focusing on space weather which involved in ionospheric physics, radio science, and numerical ionosphere-thermosphere model simulation. Now, he works at the space weather operations office in CWB to provide space weather operational service and information to local user, as well as continue to develop a data assimilation system for ionospheric forecasts.

On the other hand, Dr. Lee participated outreach education activities for space sciences with Prof. Jann-Yenq (Tiger) Liu since 2005, and became a frequent speaker to illustrate knowledge of space science and technology, and introduce influences caused by space weather. He has extensive experience in delivering lectures and workshops to a wide audience ranging from elementary school students to the general public.
