ESA - Space Situational Awareness Space Weather - SWE   
WEB address: http://swe.ssa.esa.int/   

This is a Web-portal developed by ESA. Aims: “SWE services will centre around the SWE Data Centre at ESA's Redu station and a new SWE Service Coordination Centre (SSCC), located in Belgium at a location to be defined during the SSA Preparatory Programme. ESCs will act as focal points within the SWE architecture for expertise, data and products in that area from across Europe.”

Space Weather Portal (INPE/MCT)
WEB address: http://www2.inpe.br/climaespacial/en/index   

This Web-Portal has been created within the program "Estudo e Monitoramento Brasileiro do Clima Especial" (EMBRACE)

EMBRACE essentially provides four activities: data collection, data processing, modeling, and dissemination of results. Data acquisition are performed by stations deployed in Brazil. They include radio telescope observatories, telescopes, muon, GPS stations, ionospheric stations and magnetometer. The collected data are sent in real time over the Internet.

Views of phenomena such as solar explosions and ejections, magnetic field variation, ionospheric disturbances and plasma bubbles, are sought and published.

KHO Auroral forecast service
WEB address: http://kho.unis.no/Forecast.htm   

Two images are updated every 15 minutes. Left image show the size and location of the impact zone of energetic particles from the Sun, i.e. a green circular belt of auroral emissions around each geomagnetic pole. These belts are known as the auroral ovals. Right image shows the local all-sky view of the oval. Sun, moon and satellite or star poistions are also inluded. 5 auroral stations are included in the above animation (ARS, KHO, APATITY, NADYM, POKER FLAT, ZHONGSHAN...).

Applications that run on your computer

SWB Solar Weather Browser
WEB address: http://www.sidc.be/swb/   

The Solar Weather Browser (SWB) is a software tool developed by the Royal Observatory of Belgium for easy visualisation of solar images in combination with any context information that can be overlaid on the images and that is space weather relevant. In Fig. 1, two examples are shown of two interactively choosen combinations of data. On the left, a combination of an EIT/19.5 nm image with an overlay of CME detections by CACTus. On the right, a combination of an EIT/17.1 nm image with a 14 degrees grid and NOAA active region numbers.

KHO Auroral forecast service (for mobile)
WEB address: click here   

Forecast one hour in advance
The program forecasts up to +1 hour in time the size and location of the auroral ovals or the impact zone of energetic particles from the Sun, i.e. a green circular belt of auroral emissions around each geomagnetic pole. It also includes local weather, solar illumination and star charts from seven well known auroral observatories.
