Background information on Solar Energetic Particles and SEPEM tools

The accurate modelling of the solar energetic particle environment constitutes a priority requirement for interplanetary missions and human exploration. Modern user requirements, as well as recent observational data and scientific advances, provide considerable scope for reviewing and updating existing standard models. SEPEM incorporates recent scientific results, a complete set of cross-calibrated data, advanced engineering models and new statistical tools to address current and future needs.

Background information regarding the basic properties of solar energetic particles (SEP) events and the principles of the tools that SEPEM uses to address them can be found here:
