Space Physics Leader and Author
Geoffrey D. Reeves is a well-known space physics leader who supports the Laboratory’s intelligence and space research division. He is a frequent international speaker and prolific author who has made Los Alamos space weather data available externally, supporting scientific advances worldwide. His work has been cited more than 5,600 times. A Los Alamos Fellows Prize recipient, Reeves helped solve a lingering space mystery about how electrons within Earth’s Van Allen radiation belts can become energetic enough to kill orbiting satellites. His research may help make space weather forecasting possible and accurate so satellites can be better protected.
