TERRAVOLT Phase I will serve as initial proof of concept for a real-time geoelectric field prediction capability. Specifically, the proposed work will leverage historical magnetometer databases and the USGS/Earthscope EMTFs to develop a capability to calculate and predict geoelectric fields in real time. In order to accomplish this goal, we will leverage recent advances in data analytics and machine learning that have not been widely exploited in space weather prediction:
Our proposed effort will leverage all of these advances to provide a new capability for providing real-time forecasts of geoelectric fields that can be applied at any location where an operational time series is available and a suitable EMTF is known.
