We present a refined statistical analysis based on interplanetary coronal mass ejections (ICMEs) as well as corotating interaction regions (CIRs) for the time period 2003–2015 to estimate the impact of different solar wind types on the geomagnetic activity and the neutral density in the Earth's thermosphere. For the time‐based delimitation of the events, we rely on the catalog maintained by Richardson and Cane and the corotating interaction region lists provided by S. Vennerstrom and Jian et al… 

Using Temporal Relationship of Thermospheric Density With Geomagnetic Activity Indices and Joule Heating as Calibration for NRLMSISE‐00 During Geomagnetic Storms

The responses of thermospheric densities to geomagnetic activity indices and Joule heating are analyzed during 265 geomagnetic storms and can be used to calibrate the model NRLMSISE‐00 with neutral

Machine Learning Classification of Interplanetary Coronal Mass Ejections Using Satellite Accelerometers

It is proposed that a binary classification model can differentiate between a solar storm caused by an ICME versus a period of quiet geomagnetic activity, using only the accelerometer data of a satellite.

Earth-affecting solar transients: a review of progresses in solar cycle 24

The unprecedented multi-viewpoint observations of the Sun from space, enabled by STEREO Ahead/Behind spacecraft in combination with a suite of observatories along the Sun-Earth lines, have provided much more accurate and global measurements of the size, speed, propagation direction, and morphology of CMEs in both 3D and over a large volume in the heliosphere.
