Space Climate 8 Meeting Abstract

Advanced CME flux-rope models in EUHFORIA

Stefaan Poedts (KU Leuven / UMCS)

the EUHFORIA 2.0 team

Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) are the main drivers of interplanetary shocks and space weather disturbances. Their impact on our magnetosphere can cause severe geomagnetic storms and thus their socio-economic impact is substantial. Extreme events could potentially cause a catastrophe. A key parameter determining the geo-effectiveness of a CME is the its internal magnetic configuration upon arrival at Earth. In order to model this properly, advanced flux-rope CME models have been integrated in the heliospheric wind and CME evolution model EUHFORIA (Pomoell & Poedts, 2018). We will discuss the validation of these models and their capabilities to model the CME geo-effectiveness.

Mode of presentation: oral (Need to be confirmed by the SOC)
