In this paper we describe how we have introduced workflows into the working practices of a community for whom the concept of workflows is very new, namely the heliophysics community. Heliophysics is a branch of astrophysics which studies the Sun and the interactions between the Sun and the planets, by tracking solar events as they travel throughout the(More)
Context. We diagnose the properties of the plume and interplume regions in a polar coronal hole and the role of waves in the acceleration of the solar wind. Aims. We attempt to detect whether Alfvén waves are present in the polar coronal holes through variations in EUV line widths. Methods. Using spectral observations performed over a polar coronal hole(More)
Heliophysics is the study of highly energetic events that originate on the sun and propogate through the solar system. Such events can cause critical and possibly fatal disruption of the electromagnetic systems on spacecraft and on ground based structures such as electric power grids, so there is a clear need to understand the events in their totality as(More)
Heliophysics is the branch of physics that investigates the interactions and correlation of different events across the Solar System. The mathematical models that describe and predict how physical events move across the solar system (ie. Propagation Models) are of great relevance. These models depend on parameters that users must set, hence the ability to(More)
The Sun is responsible for the eruption of billions of tons of plasma and the generation of near light-speed particles that propagate throughout the solar system and beyond. If directed towards Earth, these events can be damaging to our tecnological infrastructure. Hence there is an effort to understand the cause of the eruptive events and how they(More)
Comparison of appropriate theoretical derived line ratios with observational data can yield estimates of a plasma’s physical parameters, such as electron density or temperature. The usual practice in the calculation of the line ratio is the assumption of excitation by electrons/protons followed by radiative decay. Furthermore, it is normal to use the(More)
Aims. Although the temporal evolution of active regions (ARs) is relatively well understood, the processes involved continue to be the subject of investigation. We study how the magnetic field of a series of ARs evolves with time to better characterise how ARs emerge and disperse. Methods. We examined the temporal variation in the magnetic field(More)
