We present a major update to the 3D coronal rope ejection (3DCORE) technique for modeling coronal mass ejection flux ropes in conjunction with an approximate Bayesian computation (ABC) algorithm that is used for fitting the model to in situ magnetic field measurements. The model assumes an empirically motivated torus-like flux rope structure that expands self-similarly within the heliosphere, is influenced by a simplified interaction with the solar wind environment, and carries along an… 
Multipoint Interplanetary Coronal Mass Ejections Observed with Solar Orbiter, BepiColombo, Parker Solar Probe, Wind, and STEREO-A
We report the result of the first search for multipoint in situ and imaging observations of interplanetary coronal mass ejections (ICMEs) starting with the first Solar Orbiter (SolO) data in 2020
Forecasting GICs and Geoelectric Fields From Solar Wind Data Using LSTMs: Application in Austria
The forecasting of local GIC effects has largely relied on the forecasting of dB/dt as a proxy and, to date, little attention has been paid to directly forecasting the geoelectric field or GICs

Machine Learning for Predicting the Bz Magnetic Field Component From Upstream in Situ Observations of Solar Coronal Mass Ejections
Predicting the Bz magnetic field embedded within interplanetary coronal mass ejections (ICMEs), also known as the Bz problem, is a key challenge in space weather forecasting. We study the hypothesis
Modeling Interplanetary Expansion and Deformation of Coronal Mass Ejections With ANTEATR‐PARADE: Sensitivity to Input Parameters
Space weather predictions related to coronal mass ejections (CMEs) requires understanding how a CME is initiated and how its properties change as it propagates. Most predictions have been limited to
The PAU survey: measurement of narrow-band galaxy properties with approximate bayesian computation
Narrow-band imaging surveys allow the study of the spectral characteristics of galaxies without the need of performing their spectroscopic follow-up. In this work, we forward-model the Physics of the
Solar origins of a strong stealth CME detected by Solar Orbiter
Aims. We aim to locate the origin of a stealth coronal mass ejection (CME) detected in situ by the MAG instrument on board Solar Orbiter and make connections between the CME observed at the Sun and
Exploring the radial evolution of interplanetary coronal mass ejections using EUHFORIA
Context. Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) are large-scale eruptions coming from the Sun and transiting into interplanetary space. While it is widely known that they are major drivers of space weather,
CME Magnetic Structure and IMF Preconditioning Affecting SEP Transport
Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and solar energetic particles (SEPs) are two phenomena that can cause severe space weather effects throughout the heliosphere. The evolution of CMEs, especially in terms
In situ multi-spacecraft and remote imaging observations of the first CME detected by Solar Orbiter and BepiColombo
On 2020 April 19 a coronal mass ejection (CME) was detected in situ by Solar Orbiter at a heliocentric distance of about 0.8 AU. The CME was later observed in situ on April 20th by the Wind and

Forward Modeling of Coronal Mass Ejection Flux Ropes in the Inner Heliosphere with 3DCORE
This work demonstrates in a proof‐of‐concept way a new approach to predict the southward field B z in a CME flux rope, and discusses assumptions and limitations of the method prototype and its potential for real time space weather forecasting and heliospheric data interpretation.
Magnetic cloud fit by uniform-twist toroidal flux ropes
Context. Detailed studies of magnetic cloud observations in the solar wind in recent years indicate that magnetic clouds are interplanetary flux ropes with a low twist. Commonly, their magnetic
