Flares, Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) and their interplanetary counterparts (ICMEs) remain topics of important research in the field of solar-terrestrial relations. Flares can have an important impact (UV radiation, particles) on the Earth's atmosphere. Recent remote observations and modeling 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). Interplanetary Coronal Mass Ejections (ICMEs) are the main drivers of large geomagnetic storms.
In this session, we invite observational, theoretical, and modeling contributions that address the following topics: Particle acceleration at flares as well as the response of the lower ionosphere to a variety of external forcing during flares, such as energetic particles and solar UV and X-ray variability. The coronal dynamics of CME and shocks, the related early production of SEPs, as well as their magnetic connectivity and early-stage transport in the heliosphere. 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. Other general topics linked with flares, CMEs and ICMEs.
