SEPorigin project title:
The origin of solar energetic particles:
solar flares vs. coronal mass ejections
The goal of the project is to identify the individual contribution of flares vs. CMEs to
the resultant flux of solar energetic particles by means of observations.
Different working hypotheses will be tested: there is one primary particle accelerator
for the entire SEP population; there is a mixed contribution from flares and CMEs that
vary from event to event; the injection and transport processes are the dominant
factors compared to acceleration.
Large statistical studies will be complemented with detailed event analysis (using also
data from the Russian satellites Vernov and CORONAS-F SONG and from the
ground-based Rozhen observatory in Bulgaria).
