Abstract:

The long-term goal is to improve the prediction of traveling solar disturbances which impact the geospace environment. Such disturbances, which are associated with both coronal holes and coronal mass ejections CMEs launched from the Sun, can cause substantial geomagnetic effects, including the crippling of satellites, disruption of radio communications, and damage to electric power grids.
