MEDOC and CDPP connected services for space weather applications

The conjugated analysis of solar data with in-situ measurements is of primary importance for Space Weather applications. MEDOC (Multi-Experiment Data and Operations Centre, for remote-sensing solar observations) and CDPP (Centre de Données de Physique des Plasmas, for in-situ measurements) are both engaged for more than a decade in the archival and dissemination of data, and have developed tools to analyse them.

For example, the Propagation Tool (jointly developed by CDPP and MEDOC through the STORMS service), by computing the time delay between observations at the Sun and at interplanetary locations, enables and greatly facilitates cross analysis of remote-sensing and in-situ data of solar perturbations, such as Coronal Mass Ejection, Co-rotating Interaction Regions and Solar Energetic Particles events.
