List Last Updated: Sep 13, 2017.
Explanation of Columns
ICME Event Start- Beginning of the ICME signature in-situ at ACE
ICME Event End- Estimated End of ICME signature in-situ at ACE
CME in LASCO- First appearance of the CME in LASCO C2, or STEREO COR2 in the event of a LASCO data gap.
ICME TYPE- Describes the signature in-situ, Shock Front (SH), MC (Magnetic Cloud), EJ (CME Ejecta Front)
AR- The Source Active region of the CME, if there is one
Surface Location- The location of the Active Region or, if there is no AR, the approximate location of the eruption.
Flare Magnitude- If the CME is associated with a flare, the strength of the flare.
Flare Onset Time- The beginning of the flare
SEEDS VEL C2*- The velocity of the CME, as determined by the SEEDS C2 Catalog
SEEDS VEL A*- The velocity of the CME, as determined by the SEEDS STEREO Catalog
SEEDS VEL B*- The velocity of the CME, as determined by the SEEDS STEREO Catalog
AVG. VEL- The average velocity of the CME as calculated by determining the time of the CME in C2 and the beginning of the signature in-situ
Velocity- The average velocity of the ejecta at ACE
DST Peak/DST Peak Time- The lowest value of the DST index and the time it occurs (as long as the peak is below -40)
Ejecta Start Time-The beginning of the CME Ejecta in-situ (if there is no shock this is the same as the ICME start time)
Quality Rating- This denotes the quality of the event's signature in-situ, 1 is the best, 3 is the worst.
In-Situ Link- A link to the in-situ data for the event
C2 Link- A link to a movie of the CME in LASCO C2
COR2 Link- A link to a movie of the CME in STEREO COR2
EIT/AIA Link- A link to a movie of the eruption on the Sun as seen by either the SOHO EIT or SDO AIA instrument
*These velocities are for quick reference only, and should not be taken at face value. There are different errors that are present in these velocities and they should not be used for an serious study or research work
