The Space Environment Services Center was renamed The Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) in 2007. It is a laboratory and service center of the US National Weather Service (NWS), part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and it funded by the US government. SWPC continually monitors and forecasts Earth’s space environment, providing solar-terrestrial information. SWPC is the official source of space weather alerts and warnings for the United States.


The SWPC Forecast Center is the national and world warning center for disturbances that can affect people and equipment working in the space environment.


NOAA spearheads space weather activities on both a national and international level. Down the street from the University of Colorado Boulder, it serves as an incredible resource to university students and researchers. As SWPC Chief Scientist and CU Aerospace Engineering Sciences (AES) Adjunct Professor, Dr. Howard Singer stimulates collaborations between these two institutions, promoting exchanges of expertise and insight.
