Evaluating the potential of terrestrial impact of a CME using solar observations (from Savani et al. 2015. Credit: N. Savani & Wiley/AGU).
The Drivers of Space Weather
Understand the geo-effectiveness of CMEs and Corotating Interaction Regions (CIRs)
- CME evolution in interplanetary space (kinematics, distortion, rotation, etc).
- Magnetic field structure at 1 AU.
- • Formation/evolution of Corotating Interaction Regions (CIRs).
- 'sun-to-mud' studies of Earth-directed CMEs.
