Splinter - Solar Storms: Flares, CMEs and Solar Energetic Particle (SEP) events

Vilmer, Nicole - LESIA Observatoire de Paris, FRANCE
Malandraki, Olga - NOA, GREECE
Crosby, Norma - BIRA-IASB, BELGIUM

Thursday November 21st, 2013, 15:15-16:45

This splinter meeting will cover topics from the SWWT Topical Working Group Drivers of Space Weather, Subgroup 2 Solar Storms. The program consists of invited talks (15 min) about the understanding of
  1. particle acceleration and transport processes at the Sun and in the inner heliosphere.
  2. the onset of CMES, propagation in the interplanetary medium and subsequent interactions with the Earth's magnetosphere.
  3. the impact of flares (UV radiation, particles) on the Earth's atmosphere.
The schedule is as follows:
  1. Thanassis Papaioannou (National Observatory of Athens), Solar Energetic particles within the STEREO era : 2007-2012
  2. Bernd Heber (Christian-Albrechts-Universitat zu Kiel), A statistical survey of wide-spread solar electron events observed with STEREO and ACE
  3. Neus Agueda (Universitat de Barcelona), Numerical simulations of the propagation of SEPs
  4. Francesco Zucarello (KU Leuven), Numerical simulations of CME's in the interplanetary medium
  5. Jan Maik Wissing (University of Osnabrück), Modelling particle precipitation in the Earth's atmosphere
