SPACECAST is a three year project which runs until 28 Feb 2014. At present, the web site
provides a forecast of high energy electron fluxes and an associated risk
index. The underlying models will be
improved as part of the research element of the project.
In future, we will also provide a forecast of low energy electrons,
modelling of Solar Energetic Particles and an alert service.

Access to the web site is unrestricted, however, future products such as
the alert services will require a registered account. You can already sign
up for an account, so we can contact you when new products
