<blockquote>'Every hundred years or so, a solar storm comes along so potent it fills the skies of Earth with blood-red auroras, makes compass needles point in the wrong direction, and sends electric currents coursing through the planet's topsoil. The most famous such storm, the Carrington Event of 1859, actually shocked telegraph operators and set some of their offices on fire. A 2008 report by the National Academy of Sciences warns that if such a storm occurred today, we could experience widespread power blackouts with permanent damage to many key transformers.'

'Geomagnetic storms cover large geographical regions, at times the whole globe.'

<blockquote>'Geomagnetically induced currents (GIC), occurring during magnetic storms, pose a natural disaster risk to the reliable operation of electric power transmission grids.


GIC are observed in power transmission grids, oil and gas pipelines, telecommunication cables and railways. This project focuses on high-voltage power transmission networks, which are probably currently the most susceptible to GIC effects.

Geomagnetic storms cover large geographical regions, at times the whole globe.'
