Space Weather impacts on the Earth's upper atmosphere

Space weather refers to the conditions on the Sun and in solar wind, magnetosphere, ionosphere and thermosphere which can influence the performance and reliability of space-borne and ground-based technological systems and can endanger human life or health. Solar coronal mass ejections, large solar flares and high speed solar wind streams often leads to disturbances in the Earth's ionosphere, magnetosphere and even on the surface of the Earth. The ionosphere is the region of ionized plasma extending from about 50 to 1200 km above the Earth surface.
