Solar storms, which take shape as solar flares or coronal mass ejections, can disrupt radio, GPS, and radar systems, cause power outages, and damage or even destroy satellites. Space centers around the world help watch for signs of these kinds of storms and help alert airlines, governments, and electrical providers of potential effects of solar storms.
Solar storms can screw with GPS systems, satellites and radio waves; primarily our technology is affected by solar storms. They can also expose our atmosphere to large amounts of radiation.
Solar storms and the radiation particles they emit interact with our atmosphere and cause aurora borealis in the Northern Hemisphere and aurora australis in the Southern Hemisphere. Highly charged particles interact with atoms at high altitudes of the Earth’s atmosphere and cause a brilliant display of lights. I also remember reading that the Earth actively ejects part of its atmosphere during solar storms. These are examples of how solar storms affect the atmosphere.
