Session 1 - Solar Corona and Heliosphere: From Flares to CMEs and Interplanetary Shocks

Luciano Rodriguez (ROB), Jasmina Magdalenic (ROB), Emilia Kilpua (Univ of Helsinki), Sergio Dasso (IAFE/UBA)
Monday 5/11, 13:30-15:00 & 15:45-17:15

Flares, Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) and associated shock waves are the topics of important research in the field of solar-terrestrial relations. Interplanetary Coronal Mass Ejections (ICMEs) and associated shock waves are the main drivers of geomagnetic storms. Flares can have an important impact (UV radiation, particles) on the Earth's atmosphere. Recent remote observations and modelling studies have shown that coronal mass ejections (CMEs) can drive shock waves very low in the solar corona, which, in turn, may produce significant fluxes of solar energetic particles (SEP). All these topics open a need for realistic data-driven simulations of CMEs and associated shocks with models like EUHFORIA or ENLIL.
In this session, we invite observational, theoretical, and modelling contributions that address the following topics:

  • Flares, the coronal dynamics of CME and shock waves and their related production of SEPs
  • CME propagation in the heliosphere, the interaction of ICMEs with Earth and/or with other planets
  • The link between CMEs and ICMEs.
