It is now possible to observe CMEs and flares including initial
CME and flare dynamics, and CME propagation, continuously from
the low solar corona to 1 AU and measure the in situ properties
of the CME ejecta in multiple locations in the heliosphere.
Recent studies show that the initial CME acceleration and the
associated flare energy release could have some physical connection.
Further out in the heliosphere, there is clear evidence of CME
interactions with the ambient medium influencing the dynamics and
morphology of CMEs. These observations constitute a rigorous
challenge to theoretical and numerical models of all aspects
of the CME problem. We solicit submissions discussing observations,
theories, and simulations of CME eruption, propagation,
and associations with other phenomena (e.g., flares,
solar wind streams, etc) in the Sun-Earth heliosphere.
Abstract deadline:
31 March 2010 — 23:59 Eastern Standard Time (EST) or 03:59+1 GMT.
