Alex Hegedus' work with the NESS team involves simulating the response of low frequency radio interferometers on the lunar surface to do solar science and space weather prediction. In particular, the simulated arrays localize Type II & III bursts moving outward from the sun that track the accelerated particles from events such as coronal mass ejections. LRO data is used to realistically identify sites for future arrays. He plans on incorporating these measurements into a space weather prediction algorithm to more directly show the benefit of lunar arrays.
