Images observed by the twin spacecraft Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory (STEREO) A and B appear as complex structures for two coronal mass ejections (CMEs) on 1 August 2010. Therefore, a series of sky maps of Thomson-scattered white light by interplanetary coronal mass ejections (ICMEs) on 1 August 2010 are simulated using the Hakamada–Akasofu–Fry (HAF) three-dimensional solar-wind model. A comparison between the simulated images and observations of STEREO-A and -B clarifies the structure and evolution of ICMEs (including shocks) in the observed images. The results demonstrate that the simulated images from the HAF model are very useful in the interpretation of the observed images when the ICMEs overlap within the fields of view of the instruments onboard STEREO-A and -B.

    We present results from a study of the CME event that occurred in May 1997 using a data-driven three-dimensional (3-D), time-dependent, magnetohydrogynamic (MHD) numerical simulation model [1]. We focus on the initiation and evolution of the coronal mass ejection (CME) and its driven shock in...

    On 27 June 2009 the Wind and Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) spacecraft near Earth detected a magnetic cloud (MC). The MC can be traced back to a slow coronal mass ejection (CME) launched from the Sun on 22 June 2009 but this connection relies entirely on heliospheric imaging of the...

    The generally low interplanetary magnetic field magnitude around the minimum between Solar Cycles 23 and 24 (SC 23/24 minimum) allows us to identify weak and small solar wind structures. We use observations from near-Earth and twin STEREO spacecraft to study solar wind conditions from January...

    Multi-spacecraft observations are used to study the in-situ effects of a large coronal mass ejection (CME) erupting from the farside of the Sun on 3 November 2011, with particular emphasis on the associated solar energetic particle (SEP) event. At that time both Solar Terrestrial Relations...

    nalysis of the Interball-1 spacecraft data (1995 - 2000) has shown that the solar wind ion flux sometimes increases or decreases abruptly by more than 20% over a time period of several seconds or minutes. Typically, the amplitude of such sharp changes in the solar wind ion flux (SCIFs) is larger...

    Launched on 8 August 2001, the NASA Genesis mission is now collecting samples of the solar wind in various materials, and will return those samples to Earth in 2004 for analysis. A primary science goal of Genesis is the determination of the isotopic and elemental composition of the solar...
