This is the April 26, 2018 joint hearing titled "Surveying the Space Weather Landscape," held before the House Subcommittee on Environment & Subcommittee on Space of the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. From the opening statement of Andy Biggs: "With an issue as complex and consequential as this one, it is important that we begin a dialogue on where we are and where we are going. There are many exciting developments in space weather, from innovative space weather technologies and the accuracy of space weather forecasting models, to the potential impacts space weather can have on our terrestrial environment. All of these topics are important and worth addressing, but I think it's crucial that we first lay the groundwork for understanding the current policies, procedures, and major players in both the private and public sectors. And I'm pleased to have key stakeholders from private industry, as well as academia, along with leaders from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) with us today. I look forward to hearing from them about not only what their efforts have been in this arena, but also what they think the future holds for the observation, modeling, and forecasting of space weather events." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Neil Jacobs, Jim Spann, Sarah Gibson, and W. Kent Tobiska.
