About SANSA International Space Weather Camp: The Space Weather Camp is coming to South Africa for the fourth time since its inception in 2011. Initially the ISWC (formerly JSWSC, Joint Space Weather Summer Camp) was a partnership between DLR, University of Rostock and University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAHuntsville). The collaboration was extended in 2015 with SANSA joining DLR and UAHuntsville in participating and hosting in a trilateral arrangement.
The Camp consists of a series of lectures, hands-on projects and other interesting activities. The lecture subject matter covers various aspects related to Space Weather, comprising cosmic ray particle transport theory, plasma physics, solar physics, heliospheric physics, computer simulations for modelling and understanding local Space Weather, and the impact on Earth’s atmosphere, satellites, and space.
