Geomagnetic storms can have planetary footprints and can create geomagnetically induced currents (GIC) via a variety of differing storm processes in electric power grids at high as well as low latitude locations. An overview will be provided on efforts that are underway to observe and understand the vulnerability of power grids around the world to this phenomenon.
