Being able to accurately predict the arrival of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) at Earth has been a long‐standing problem in space weather research and operations. In this study, we use the ELlipse Evolution model based on Heliospheric Imager (ELEvoHI) to predict the arrival time and speed of 10 CME events that were observed by HI on the STEREO‐A spacecraft between 2010 and 2020. Additionally, we introduce a Python tool for downloading and preparing STEREO‐HI data, as well as tracking CMEs. In…

CMEs and SEPs During November‐December 2020: A Challenge for Real‐Time Space Weather Forecasting

Predictions of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and solar energetic particles (SEPs) are a central issue in space weather forecasting. In recent years, interest in space weather predictions has expanded

Ensemble Prediction of a Halo Coronal Mass Ejection Using Heliospheric Imagers

This study suggests that L1 may provide a sufficient vantage point for an Earth‐directed CME, when observed by HI, and that ensemble modeling could be a feasible approach to use ELEvoHI operationally.

Why are ELEvoHI CME Arrival Predictions Different if Based on STEREO‐A or STEREO‐B Heliospheric Imager Observations?

Accurate forecasting of the arrival time and arrival speed of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) is an unsolved problem in space weather research. In this study, a comparison of the predicted arrival

Validation of a priori CME arrival predictions made using real‐time heliospheric imager observations

Between December 2010 and March 2013, volunteers for the Solar Stormwatch (SSW) Citizen Science project have identified and analyzed coronal mass ejections (CMEs) in the near real‐time Solar

Modeling observations of solar coronal mass ejections with heliospheric imagers verified with the Heliophysics System Observatory

These results form a first‐order approximated baseline of the prediction accuracy that is possible with HI and other methods used for data by an operational space weather mission at the Sun‐Earth L5 point.

ElEvoHI: A NOVEL CME PREDICTION TOOL FOR HELIOSPHERIC IMAGING COMBINING AN ELLIPTICAL FRONT WITH DRAG-BASED MODEL FITTING

In this study, we present a new method for forecasting arrival times and speeds of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) at any location in the inner heliosphere. This new approach enables the adoption of a

Quantitative comparison of methods for predicting the arrival of coronal mass ejections at Earth based on multiview imaging

We investigate the performance of six methods for predicting the coronal mass ejection (CME) time of arrival (ToA) and velocity at Earth using a sample of nine Earth‐impacting CMEs between March 2010

A comparison of space weather analysis techniques used to predict the arrival of the Earth‐directed CME and its shockwave launched on 8 April 2010

It is concluded that for forecasts based on the STerEO coronagraph data, it is important to take account of the subsequent acceleration/deceleration of each CME through interaction with the solar wind, while predictions based on measurements of CMEs made by the STEREO Heliospheric Imagers would benefit from higher temporal and spatial resolution.
