Session 4 - The role of Interplanetary Coronal Mass Ejections in Space Weather

Luciano Rodriguez (ROB); Sergio Dasso (IAFE/UBA)
Tuesday 28/11, 9:45 - 13:00

KEYWORDS - ICME, Interplanetary Coronal Mass Ejections, space weather, in situ data

Interplanetary Coronal Mass Ejections (ICMEs) are the main drivers of large geomagnetic storms. Their influence on space weather is a topic of intense research. In recent years, multispacecraft observations and high performance numerical MHD simulations have contributed largely to this field. The comparisons between models and observations are clarifying several problems, such as the effects of the ambient solar wind on their propagation and internal configuration, the link between ICMEs and non-thermal energetic particles in the heliosphere (solar, interplanetary, and galactic origin), etc. In this session we invite contributions focused on ICME studies, including ICME propagation in the heliosphere, the interaction of ICMEs with Earth and/or with other planets, the link between CMEs and ICMEs, their relation with energetic particles, as well as on other general topics linked with ICMEs.
