You can register to receive an email when a new alert arrives in the alert system. To reach the alert subscription page, you have to click on the “Register for COMESEP alerts” link at the bottom left of the user interface.

register start

If this is your first visit to the registration page, you have to use the "Register" button to become a registered user. A registered user can subscribe to alerts and receive emails when new space weather alerts are issued by the COMESEP alert system.

Notice: Your password should contain between 4 and 12 characters, at least one digit [0-9], at least one letter [a-z,A-Z] and at least one special character [.,-_!#:+]

After you have registered you will receive a confirmation email. To confirm your registration, you have to click on the link provided in that email. Your account will then be checked manually by the COMESEP team before it is activated (an email will be sent to you when activation has occurred). This can take a few days.

Once your registration has been activated, you can click on the "Login" button and go to the main panel.

register main

On the main panel you can subscribe to three different types of alerts: geomagnetic storms, SEP proton events bigger than 10 MeV and those bigger than 60 MeV. You can define for which impact risk levels (low to extreme) you prefer to receive alerts. The impact risk is associated to the matrix that is explained in the Timeline frame section of the User interface help page. You have to click on “Update” to confirm your selection.

In the lower part of the subscription page  the latest alerts are displayed. Here you see both the alerts with and without an impact risk on the Earth’s environment.

Notice: You can only get emails for alerts that have an impact risk. In the lower part, you see also information about flares and CME’s. However, there is no registration to receive these alerts by email because the associated scientific tools do not directly define an impact risk.

Below is an example of an alert sent by email.
