The Corona

The WP 1130-Corona studies the connection between the conditions in the solar corona and the main drivers of SWE phenomena.

Specifically, this WP performs the implementation of computational methods for the analysis and interpretation of the physical mechanisms underlying events occurring in the solar corona. It develops a set of algorithms for both flare–related and CME data, by exploiting EUV images, hard X-ray visibilities (see Figure 1) and full-disk magnetograms. Two types of algorithms are expected. First, we have reconstruction algorithms, when the mathematical description of the physical model generating the data, from some unknown source, is known (e.g. Fourier imaging or image desaturation). Second we have estimation algorithms, when the model describing the physical phenomenon is unknown and it is estimated by supposing it has a certain simplified form (e.g. forecasting solar flares from magnetograms).
