Abstract The Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) is the third mission in NASA’s Solar Terrestrial Probes program. The mission is managed by the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) and implemented by The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL). This two-year mission provides a unique and revolutionary view of the Sun–Earth system. Consisting of two nearly identical observatories, one ahead of Earth in its orbit around the Sun and the other trailing behind the… Expand
Forecasting and Modelling the Terrestrial Effects of Space Weather using STEREO and CMAT2
The work presented in this thesis focuses on two aspects of space weather. The first of these uses NASA’s Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory (STEREO) to measure solar wind properties. TheExpand
Solar Energetic Particles and Solar Events - Lessons Learned from Multi-Spacecraft Observations
Never before has the heliosphere and the Sun been so carefully monitored by so many spacecraft; in particular, the STEREO spacecraft have allowed simultaneous observations to be made routinely fromExpand
The Radiometric and Pointing Calibration of SECCHI COR1 on STEREO
COR1 is the innermost coronagraph of the Sun Earth Connection Coronal and Heliospheric Investigation (SECCHI) instrument suite aboard the twin Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO)Expand

Investigating Our Dynamic Solar Corona from Near Sun to 1 Au
In this thesis, we study two areas of high interest in solar physics: the propagation of coronal mass ejections (CMEs); and the heating and thermal evolution of coronal loops. In our study of CMEs,Expand
3He-rich Solar Energetic Particle Observations at the Parker Solar Probe and near Earth
The Integrated Science Investigation of the Sun (IS⊙IS) instrument suite on the Parker Solar Probe (PSP) spacecraft is making in situ observations of energetic ions and electrons closer to the SunExpand
Geometric Localization of CMEs in 3D Space Using STEREO Beacon Data: First Results
The geometric localization technique (Pizzo and Biesecker, Geophys. Res. Lett.31, 21802, 2004) can readily be used with Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) Space Weather Beacon data toExpand
Solar Stereoscopy and Tomography
We review stereoscopic and tomographic methods used in the solar corona, including ground-based and space-based measurements, using solar rotation or multiple spacecraft vantage points, in particularExpand
On the Long-Term Evolution of the Sensitivity of the STEREO HI-1 Cameras
The Heliospheric Imagers (HI) on the Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory (STEREO) observe the solar wind and disturbances therein as it propagates from close to the Sun to 1 AU and beyond. InExpand
SpaceWeather Tracking CMEs using data from the Solar Stormwatch project ; observing deflections and other properties
With increasing technological dependence, society is becoming ever more affected by changes in the near-Earth space environment caused by space weather. The primary driver of these hazards areExpand


STEREO observatory trade studies and resulting architecture
TheSTEREO architecture as it pertains to avionics and the functional allocation amongst its processors is discussed, providing a level of hardware and software robustness that was not present in the initial STEREO design. Expand
Autonomous Avoidance of Structural Resonances on the STEREO Mission
In October of 2006, the STEREO satellites w ere launched. The STEREO mission consists of two spacecraft in heliocentric orbits, one leading and one lagging the Earth, that carry a number of differentExpand
