Using the potential of two unprecedented missions, Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) and Reuven Ramaty High-Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (RHESSI), we study three well-observed fast coronal mass ejections (CMEs) that occurred close to the limb together with their associated high-energy flare emissions in terms of RHESSI hard X-ray (HXR) spectra and flux evolution. From STEREO/EUVI and STEREO/COR1 data, the full CME kinematics of the impulsive acceleration phase up to ~4 R… Expand
MEASUREMENTS OF THE CORONAL ACCELERATION REGION OF A SOLAR FLARE
The Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (RHESSI) and the Nobeyama Radioheliograph (NoRH) are used to investigate coronal hard X-ray and microwave emissions in the partiallyExpand
Multiwavelength Analysis of the Kinematics of a Long Duration Flare-CME Event on 27 January 2012
We present a detailed analysis of a long-duration flare associated with a coronal mass ejection (CME) event that occurred on 27 January 2012 in the active region (AR) 11402. We analyze the kinematicsExpand

ACCELERATION OF CORONAL MASS EJECTIONS FROM THREE-DIMENSIONAL RECONSTRUCTION OF STEREO IMAGES
We employ a three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction technique for the first time to study the kinematics of six coronal mass ejections (CMEs), using images obtained from the COR1 and COR2 coronagraphsExpand
Multi-thermal dynamics and energetics of a coronal mass ejection in the low solar atmosphere
Aims. The aim of this work is to determine the multi-thermal characteristics and plasma energetics of an eruptive plasmoid and occulted flare observed by the Solar Dynamics Observatory’s AtmosphericExpand
On Flare-CME Characteristics from Sun to Earth Combining Remote-Sensing Image Data with In Situ Measurements Supported by Modeling
TLDR
It is found that magnetic reconnection processes were already ongoing before the start of the impulsive flare phase, adding magnetic flux to the flux rope before its final eruption, supporting the scenario that fast outflows might supply additional mass to the rear part of the CME. Expand
ON THE ORIGIN OF THE SOLAR MORETON WAVE OF 2006 DECEMBER 6
We analyzed ground- and space-based observations of the eruptive flare (3B/X6.5) and associated Moreton wave (~850 km s–1; ~270° azimuthal span) of 2006 December 6 to determine the wave driver—eitherExpand
