Models and data analysis tools for the Solar Orbiter mission

Context.The Solar Orbiter spacecraft will be equipped with a wide range of remote-sensing (RS) and in situ (IS) instruments to record novel and unprecedented measurements of the solar atmosphere and

In Situ Measurements of the Variable Slow Solar Wind near Sector Boundaries

The release of density structures at the tip of the coronal helmet streamers, likely as a consequence of magnetic reconnection, contributes to the mass flux of the slow solar wind (SSW). In situ

Relating Streamer Flows to Density and Magnetic Structures at the Parker Solar Probe

The physical mechanisms that produce the slow solar wind are still highly debated. Parker Solar Probe’s (PSP’s) second solar encounter provided a new opportunity to relate in situ measurements of the

Solar surveillance with CLIMSO: instrumentation, database and on-going developments

The current instrumental configuration of CLIMSO is presented; the available products and how to access them are detailed and mentioned; some possible applications for solar and space weather are mentioned; and developments underway are evoke.

Tracking solar wind flows from rapidly varying viewpoints by the Wide-field Imager for Parker Solar Probe

Aims. Our goal is to develop methodologies to seamlessly track transient solar wind flows viewed by coronagraphs or heliospheric imagers from rapidly varying viewpoints. Methods. We constructed maps

On the Radial and Longitudinal Variation of a Magnetic Cloud: ACE, Wind, ARTEMIS and Juno Observations

We present observations of the same magnetic cloud made near Earth by the Advance Composition Explorer (ACE), Wind, and the Acceleration, Reconnection, Turbulence and Electrodynamics of the Moon’s

Origins of the Ambient Solar Wind: Implications for Space Weather

The Sun’s outer atmosphere is heated to temperatures of millions of degrees, and solar plasma flows out into interplanetary space at supersonic speeds. This paper reviews our current understanding of

Connecting Coronal Mass Ejections to Their Solar Active Region Sources: Combining Results from the HELCATS and FLARECAST Projects

Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and other solar eruptive phenomena can be physically linked by combining data from a multitude of ground-based and space-based instruments alongside models; however,

Detailed Imaging of Coronal Rays with the Parker Solar Probe

The Wide-field Imager for Solar PRobe (WISPR) obtained the first high-resolution images of coronal rays at heights below 15 R⊙ when the Parker Solar Probe (PSP) was located inside 0.25 au during the




Images of the solar corona obtained by the Solar-Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) provide high-cadence, high-resolution observations of a compression wave forming ahead of a fast (940 km

Observational Evidence for the Associated Formation of Blobs and Raining Inflows in the Solar Corona

The origin of the slow solar wind is still a topic of much debate. The continual emergence of small transient structures from helmet streamers is thought to constitute one of the main sources of the

Long-Term Tracking of Corotating Density Structures Using Heliospheric Imaging

The systematic monitoring of the solar wind in high-cadence and high-resolution heliospheric images taken by the Solar-Terrestrial Relation Observatory (STEREO) spacecraft permits the study of the

First imaging of corotating interaction regions using the STEREO spacecraft

Plasma parcels are observed propagating from the Sun out to the large coronal heights monitored by the Heliospheric Imagers (HI) instruments onboard the NASA STEREO spacecraft during September 2007.

Three-Dimensional Evolution of Erupted Flux Ropes from the Sun (2 – 20 R⊙) to 1 AU

Studying the evolution of magnetic clouds entrained in coronal mass ejections using in-situ data is a difficult task, since only a limited number of observational points is available at large

A synoptic view of solar transient evolution in the inner heliosphere using the Heliospheric Imagers on STEREO

By exploiting data from the STEREO/heliospheric imagers (HI) we extend a well‐established technique developed for coronal analysis by producing time‐elongation plots that reveal the nature of solar

The Heliospheric Imagers Onboard the STEREO Mission

Mounted on the sides of two widely separated spacecraft, the two Heliospheric Imager (HI) instruments onboard NASA’s STEREO mission view, for the first time, the space between the Sun and Earth.

Measurements of Flow Speeds in the Corona Between 2 and 30 R☉

Time-lapse sequences of white-light images, obtained during sunspot minimum conditions in 1996 by the Large Angle Spectrometric Coronagraph on the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, give the

Speeds and Arrival Times of Solar Transients Approximated by Self-similar Expanding Circular Fronts

The NASA Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory (STEREO) mission offered the possibility to forecast the arrival times, speeds, and directions of solar transients from outside the Sun–Earth line. In


In this paper, we use coronal and heliospheric images from the Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) spacecraft to track streamer blobs into the heliosphere and to observe them being swept
