The most dramatic changes in the solar corona occur during coronal mass ejections, or CMEs, during which solar material is propelled outward into the heliosphere from regions in the corona not previously participating in the solar wind expansion. These ejections often produce major solar wind disturbances, large geomagnetic storms, enhancements of moderate energy (MeV) particle fluxes and decreases in the galactic cosmic ray particle flux. This paper provides an overview of the CME phenomenon with emphasis on the CMEs themselves and how they evolve as they propagate out through the heliosphere. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    We will present detailed observations of the asymmetrical eruption of a large quiescent filament on 24 November 2002, which was followed by a two-ribbon flare, three coronal dimmings, endpoint brightenings, and a very fast halo-type coronal mass ejection (CME). Before the eruption, the filament...

    We examine the near-Earth Interplanetary Coronal Mass Ejection (ICME) apparently related to the intense Solar Energetic Particle (SEP) event of 20 January 2005. Our purpose is to contribute to the understanding of the macroscopic structure, evolution and dynamics of the solar corona and...

    Previously, we investigated the sensitivity of the 3D MHD Wang-Sheeley-Arge (WSA)-Enlil numerical results to the input 'cone' geometry for an Earth-directed 'halo' coronal mass ejection (CME) event [1]. A modeling ensemble was created from multiple sets of input parameters obtained through the...

    Current theoretical ideas on the internal structure of CMEs suggest that a flux rope is central to the CME structure, which has considerable observational support both from remote-sensing and in-situ observations. The flux-rope nature is also consistent with the post-eruption arcades with...

    We demonstrate that major asymmetries in erupting filaments and CMEs, namely major twists and non-radial motions are typically related to the larger-scale ambient environment around eruptive events. Our analysis of prominence eruptions observed by the STEREO, SDO, and SOHO spacecraft shows that...

    We present a study which focuses on the speed evolution of a coronal mass ejection (CME)/shock associated with a type II radio burst observed on January 25, 2007. The type II burst feature had a multi-spacecraft coverage, being detected by the Wind/WAVES and the STEREO/WAVES radio instruments in...

    Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and their interplanetary counterparts (interplanetary coronal mass ejections, ICMEs) are responsible for large solar energetic particle events and severe geomagnetic storms. They can modulate the intensity of Galactic cosmic rays, resulting in non-recurrent Forbush...

    Aims. A Forbush decrease (FD) is a transient decrease followed by a gradual recovery in the observed galactic cosmic ray intensity. We seek to understand the relationship between the FDs and near-Earth interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) enhancements associated with solar coronal mass ejections...

    The LASCO-C2 coronagraph aboard the SOHO solar observatory has been providing a continuous flow of coronal images since 1996. Synoptic maps for each Carrington rotation have been built from these images, and offer a global view of the temporal evolution of the solar corona, particularly the...
