**Abstract**:
We report on the first comprehensive numerical simulation of a space weather
event, starting with th generation of a coronal mass ejection (CME).
The simulation follows this transient solar wind disturbance as it evolves
into a magnetic cloud and travels through interplanetary space towards Earth,
where we predict its interaction with the terrestrial
magnetosphere-ionosphere system. The model is based on a
magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) approach, utilizing adaptive mesh refinement
(AMR) on a parallel computer to reduce the computational time.
