Session 9 - The role of solar radio observations in Space Weather science

Jasmina Magdalenic (ROB), Alexander Nindos (Univ. of Ioannina), Manuela Temmer (Uni-Graz)
Wednesday 29/11, 9:45 - 13:00

KEYWORDS - solar radio emission, eruptive events, space weather

Solar eruptive events such as coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and flares, and associated shock waves are the most frequent drivers of disturbed space weather conditions. Since, both flares and CMEs emit radio emission, solar radio observations bring an important additional information to studies of eruptive events and correspondingly to space weather studies. Radio observations bring information about the energy release, the configuration of flare-CME source regions including the position of open magnetic field lines and their connectivity to the Earth, about the particle acceleration and transport, and the origin of solar energetic particle (SEP) events. Radio observations are also unique means of tracking CME-driven shock waves all the way from the low corona through the inner heliosphere, and they can provide information on the ambient coronal parameters.
This session aims to promote the importance of radio observations in space weather studies and introduce them to the wider heliospheric/space weather communities. The session is open to all space weather studies that exploit solar radio observations and to all studies of radio observations relevant to space weather.
