The Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate (SWSC) plans a Topical Issue on “Planetary Space Weather” to appear in 2018. Space weather – the monitoring and prediction of disturbances in our near-space environment and how they are controlled by the Sun – is since long recognized as an important aspect of understanding our Earth and protecting vital assets such as orbiting satellites and power grids. The concepts of space weather and space situational awareness have also been extended to other planets in our Solar System and in particular to spacecraft that voyage through it.
This Issue aims to detail available methods and tools developed in order to make services for planetary space weather and space situational awareness operational. Papers on the validation of the services, availability of data relevant to the field, as well as research on forecast and modelling of the planetary environments and their response to solar or meteor disturbances are welcome.
Deadline for article submission is April 15, 2018.
