Predictive Science researchers have developed a new model that uses real-time measurements of the Sun’s changing magnetic field to predict solar eruptions. This innovative approach allows for a more dynamic representation of the Sun’s activity, which is crucial during periods of heightened solar activity like the one currently being experienced.

The team created an automated process that converts raw data from the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) into a software pipeline that identifies areas of the Sun that should be energized and fine-tunes the amount of energy to add to those areas. By continuously updating the magnetic field, they hope to improve the accuracy of their predictions.

In earlier iterations of the model, researchers had to manually analyze extreme ultraviolet activity to determine which areas of the Sun needed to be energized. However, this approach was not ideal for keeping up with the Sun’s ever-changing activity. By integrating the changing magnetic field into their model, researchers at Predictive Science have taken a significant step forward in predicting solar eruptions.

The team is optimistic about the results that this year’s model will provide and is confident in its ability to accurately predict solar eruptions. With this updated approach, researchers can better understand and prepare for periods of heightened solar activity, which can have significant impacts on our planet’s atmosphere and technology infrastructure.
