Solar Demon: Near real-time dimming, flare and EUV wave detection

Solar Demon automatically detects and characterizes dimmings, solar flares, and EUV waves using SDO/AIA data. The software is running both on synoptic science data to generate event catalogues, as well as on quick-look data allowing it to detect and track events in near real-time for space weather purposes. At this fair we present an overview of Solar Demon and demonstrate how to use the Solar Demon website.

Solar Demon is a result of collaboration between the FP7 projects COMESEP and AFFECTS.
