Centro de Investigación Científica y de Educación Superior de Ensenada, CICESE

Vanesa Magar es originaria de la Ciudad de México, donde cursó las carreras de Física y Matemáticas en la Facultad de Ciencias de la UNAM. Después de graduarse como Físico en el año 1996 con una tesis de licenciatura sobre propagación de ondas en la cóclea y sus implicaciones sobre los procesos auditivos, hizo un máster de estudios avanzados en Matemáticas Aplicadas (Dinámica de Fluidos), seguido por un doctorado y un posdoctorado en Dinámica de Fluidos, en el Departamento de Matemáticas Aplicadas y Física Teórica (DAMTP) de la Universidad de Cambridge, Inglaterra, bajo la dirección de Prof. Tim Pedley FRS. Su tema de estudio se basó en modelos de absorción de nutrientes por microorganismos marinos autopropulsantes, con el objetivo de analizar si la autopropulsión es benéfica para la alimentación de estos organismos. Fue a partir de esta investigación cuando se empezó a interesar en oceanografía costera y la dinámica de los océanos. Entre 2002 y 2005 trabajó en la Escuela de Ciencias Oceánicas de la Universidad de Bangor (Gales, Reino Unido) como investigadora posdoctoral, en un proyecto sobre morfodinámica y transporte de sedimentos en zonas costeras financiado por la Unión Europea y liderado por la Universidad Tecnológica de Delft, Holanda. Posteriormente, obtuvo una catedra académica, seguida por una plaza (definitiva) de profesor-investigador en la Escuela de Ciencias Marinas e Ingeniería de la Universidad de Plymouth (Reino Unido), en donde trabajó del 2005 al final del 2013. Se incorporó al CICESE en Ensenada, Baja California, en enero del 2014, como investigadora titular del departamento de oceanografía física. Sus líneas de investigación más recientes incluyen, por ejemplo: modelación regional para la caracterización de recursos de energía renovable y análisis multicriterio, evolución del oleaje y dinámica de sedimentos en zona de rompientes, planeación espacial marina y modelación de morfodinámica en ambientes complejos, modelación estadística y efectos del cambio climático. Ha formado, junto con el Dr. Markus Gross, el Laboratorio de Dinámica de Fuidos Geofísicos y Modelación Ambiental (gem.cicese.mx). Es editora académica de la revista indizada PLOS ONE desde agosto de 2011 y editora asociada de la revista “Frontiers in Marine Science” desde 2014. Ha sido co-autora o editora de más de 100 artículos en revistas indizadas y de divulgación, así como de varios resúmenes arbitrados y 5 capítulos de libro. Ha supervisado o co-supervisado a 16 estudiantes de maestría y a 4 estudiantes de doctorado hasta su graduación. De 2010 a 2014 fue miembro del Consejo Nacional de Investigación del Medio Ambiente (NERC por sus siglas en inglés) del Reino Unido, es matemático certificado desde 2008 y catedrático distinguido desde 2011 por el Instituto de Matemáticas y Aplicaciones (IMA por sus siglas en inglés) del Reino Unido, y miembro del Instituto de Física (IOP por sus siglas en inglés) del Reino Unido. Es actualmente secretaria general de la Unión Geofísica Mexicana (2016-2017), y miembro del Sistema Nacional de Investigadores Nivel I desde 2015. En su tiempo libre le gusta cocinar, leer, dar paseos, ver a amigos y pasar tiempo con la familia. Es emprendedora social, y etóloga amateur.

THE IMPACTS OF INTENSE AND EXTREME SPACE-WEATHER EVENTS: OVERVIEW AND RESULTS FROM UK/EUROPEAN ECONOMIC STUDIES

Mario M. Bisi
RAL Space, Science & Technology Facilities Council – Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Harwell Campus, Oxfordshire, OX11 0QX, UK

Space weather – analogous to terrestrial weather which describes the changing pressure, temperature, wind, and humidity conditions on Earth – is essentially a description of near-Earth changes in velocity, density, magnetic field, and of high-energy particles and other radiation in our space environment. This includes the effects of such changes upon Earth’s magnetosphere, radiation belts, ionosphere, and thermosphere, and even down to the Earth’s surface such as with induced ground electric currents. The term “space weather” covers all of these effects but can also be considered to have two primary strands: (i) scientific research, and (ii) applications. The former is self-explanatory, but the latter includes operational aspects such as forecasting and assessing its impact. Understanding and forecasting space weather is essential in ensuring the resilience of critical national and international infrastructures, including: power grids; trade; aviation, rail, and maritime transportation networks; many satellite applications (notably location services and precision timing from GNSS) and terrestrial communication networks; and also for enabling safe human exploration of space. As a result, severe space weather has been situated high on the UK’s National Risk Register (NRR) since 2011. Space weather can have deleterious effects in the areas/infrastructures described above as well as driving the beautiful auroras typically seen in Polar Regions. In this lecture, I plan to cover several interconnected areas. (1) Provide an overview of space weather and its impacts. (2) Briefly describe the current UK position on space-weather risk and forecasting as well as where we are with the critical socio-economic studies including European studies. (3) Briefly highlight a few of the scientific areas where STFC RAL Space (often in partnership with the Met Office and many international and UK-based organisations) is working on developing deeper scientific understanding of space weather in order to potentially improve/increase the data, tools, and modelling techniques available for space-weather forecasting. Thus, I will be highlighting the importance of international collaboration (e.g. ISES, ISWI, and UNCOPUOS) with a look towards UNISPACE+50. UNISPACE+50 is the celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the first United Nations (UN) Conference on the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space. UNISPACE+50 brings a shared goal to build a comprehensive “Space2030” agenda together with all stakeholders for the contribution of space activities to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This is especially important for future space-faring and developing countries.
