To this day, the prediction of space weather effects near the Earth suffers from a fundamental problem: The radial propagation speed of “halo” CMEs (i.e. CMEs pointed along the Sun-Earth-line that are known to be the main drivers of space weather disturbances) towards the Earth cannot be measured directly because of the unfavorable geometry. From inspecting many limb CMEs observed by the LASCO coronagraphs on SOHO we found that there is usually a good correlation between the radial speed and… CONTINUE READING
