A Population Study of Solar Eruptive Events
Monday, 15 December 2014
Solar flares, coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and solar energetic particles (SEPs) are all manifestations of solar eruptive events (SEEs). The most energetic of these events pose the greatest threat to our technological society but understanding their nature and predicting their occurence rate is challenging due to their relative rarity. To better understand the nature of such events requires knowledge of their parent populations from the smallest to the largest. We revisit the populations of these events and present a preliminary analysis of their characteristics and the relationships between flare, CME and SEP distributions.
