Combining Observations with Models to Derive Coronal Mass Ejections Properties: Where We Stand and What's Next

Aims and scope

The session focuses on most recent advances on the study of Coronal Mass Ejections (CME) properties from a observational and modelling point of view.

Due to their optical thinness and their fast evolving dynamics, CMEs remain a rather elusive phenomenon of the solar corona, and estimations of their basic properties such as mass, density, velocity, volume, thermal energy, and magnetic field intensity and helicity still need further improvement. Remote sensing observations play a key role in direct measurements of these important parameters, and even more will do so with the new generation of coronagraph and instruments as ESA-Solar Orbiter, ESA-PROBA-3, and Parker Solar Probe. At the same time models greatly support this effort as they turn out a very flexible tool to investigate the 3D structure of CMEs, the magnetic field structures embedded in the ejections, and to provide means to interpret the associated EUV, UV, white light, and radio emissions images.
