 2022 Extracting the Heliographic Coordinates of Coronal Rays Using Images from WISPR/Parker Solar Probe The Wide-field Imager for Solar Probe (WISPR) onboard Parker Solar Probe (PSP), observing in white light, has a fixed angular field of view, extending from 13.5$^\ensuremath\circ$ to 108$^\ensuremath\circ$ from the Sun and approximately 50$^\ensuremath\circ$ in the transverse direction. In January 2021, on its seventh orbit, PSP crossed the heliospheric current sheet (HCS) near perihelion at a distance of 20 solar radii. At this time, WISPR observed a broad band of highly variable solar wind and multiple coronal rays. For si ... Liewer, P.~C.; Qiu, J.; Ark, F.; Penteado, P.; Stenborg, G.; Vourlidas, A.; Hall, J.~R.; Riley, P.; Published by: \solphys      Published on: sep YEAR: 2022     DOI: 10.1007/s11207-022-02058-6 Coronal Mass Ejection Deformation at 0.1 au Observed by WISPR Although coronal mass ejections (CMEs) resembling flux ropes generally expand self-similarly, deformations along their fronts have been reported in observations and simulations. We present evidence of one CME becoming deformed after a period of self-similar expansion in the corona. The event was observed by multiple white-light imagers on 2021 January 20-22. The change in shape is evident in observations from the heliospheric imagers from the Wide-Field Imager for Solar Probe Plus (WISPR), which observed this CME for \raiseb ...

These measurements provide a long term picture of the related patterns in large scale incident plasma and magnetic field parameters of interest for both interpreting cycles in geospace effects, and understanding how the Sun controls our space environment. This paper focuses on the latter, in part to provide context at the start of the new solar cycle 25, and toward establishin ... Luhmann, J.~G.; Li, Yan; Lee, C.~O.; Jian, L.~K.; Arge, C.~N.; Riley, P.; Published by: Space Weather      Published on: oct YEAR: 2022     DOI: 10.1029/2022SW003110 Parker Data Used Constraining Global Coronal Models with Multiple Independent Observables Global coronal models seek to produce an accurate physical representation of the Sun s atmosphere that can be used, for example, to drive space-weather models. Assessing their accuracy is a complex task, and there are multiple observational pathways to provide constraints and tune model parameters. Here, we combine several such independent constraints, defining a model- agnostic framework for standardized comparison. We require models to predict the distribution of coronal holes at the photosphere, and neutral line topology ...

Shock wave properties and the wide distribution of solar energetic particles Context. On 2020 November 29, an eruptive event occurred in an active region located behind the eastern solar limb as seen from Earth. The event consisted of an M4.4 class flare, a coronal mass ejection, an extreme ultraviolet (EUV) wave, and a white-light (WL) shock wave. The eruption gave rise to the first widespread solar energetic particle (SEP) event of solar cycle 25, which was observed at four widely separated heliospheric locations (\ensuremath\sim230\textdegree). \ Aims: Our aim is to better understand the source of ...

From these, we have a reasonably good working understanding of the dynamical processes that shape the formation and evolution of stream interaction regions and rarefactions, including their locations, orientations, and structure. However, given the technical expertise required to produce, maintain, and run global MHD models, their use has been relatively restricted. In ... Riley, Pete; Issan, Opal; Published by: Frontiers in Physics      Published on: may YEAR: 2021     DOI: 10.3389/fphy.2021.679497 Using Parker Solar Probe observations during the first four perihelia to constrain global magnetohydrodynamic models Context. Parker Solar Probe (PSP) is providing an unprecedented view of the Sun s corona as it progressively dips closer into the solar atmosphere with each solar encounter. Each set of observations provides a unique opportunity to test and constrain global models of the solar corona and inner heliosphere and, in turn, use the model results to provide a global context for interpreting such observations. Aims: In this study, we develop a set of global magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) model solutions of varying degrees of soph ...

This allowed in situ investigation of the heliospheric current sheet (HCS) inside the orbit of Venus. The Parker observations reveal a well defined magnetic sector structure placing the spacecraft in a negative polarity region for most of the encounter. The observed current sheet crossings are compared to the predictions of both potential field source surface and magnetohydrodynamic m ...

The comparison has so far mainly concerned the global morphology of the corona, synthetic images calculated from the models being compared with observed images. We go one step further by performing detailed quantitative comparisons between the calculated polarized radiance p B ...

Information can routinely be obtained from photospheric magnetograms, via coronal and solar-wind modelling, and directly from in situ observations, typically at large heliocentric distances (most commonly near 1 AU). Magnetogram-constrained modelling has the benefit of reconstructing global solar-wind structure, but with relatively lar ...

The quest for the SSW origin forms a major objective for the planned future missions such as the Solar Orbiter and Solar Probe Plus. Nonetheless, results from spacecraft data, combined with theoretical modeling, have helped to investigate many aspects of the SSW. Fundamental physical properties of the coronal plasma have be ...

We work with polarized SOHO/LASCO-C2 images from the last two recent minima of solar activity (1996-1997 and 2008-2010), devoid of coronal mass ejections. The goals are to derive the 4D electron density distributions in the corona by applying a newly developed time-dependent tomographic reconstruction method and to compare the result ... de Patoul, Judith; Foullon, Claire; Riley, Pete; Published by: The Astrophysical Journal      Published on: 11/2015 YEAR: 2015     DOI: 10.1088/0004-637X/814/1/68
