CHESS is a National Science Foundation Convergence Accelerator Project that is progressing societal resilience to space weather.
CHESS is focused on one of the most important and immediate impacts of space weather disturbances: disruptive and potentially catastrophic induced currents in the electric power grid known as geomagnetically induced currents (GICs).
