HELIO CDAW-2
Workshop Schedule

The goals of the CDAW will be achieved in three working groups whose members will share both their specific science and technical expertise.

Two working groups will test the capabilities of the HELIO infrastructure in dealing with science use cases pre-selected from the literature in different heliophysics domains ranging from solar events (flares, CMEs, etc.) to interplanetary (iCMEs, SIRs, SEPs, etc.) and planetary ones (iCMEs, Shocks, etc.).

Each group is expected to analyse the science workflow scheme and to use HELIO to search for the identified events using the HELIO Front End (HFE) and/or independently via the independent HELIO services including the HEC, HFC, CXS, ILS, etc.

The research workflows of a selection of relevant papers are available here. <= UPDATED !

The goals of this work are manifold:

  • It will allow the evaluation of functionality and pitfalls of the system
  • It will allow the identification of inconsistencies in the data and timings with respect to the published ones
  • It will allow the evaluation of the propagation model(s) to ascertain how well the predict arrival times and which key information is required to get consistent results. (For example, the CME longitude is a key input parameter, but is not always provided in the catalogues; similarly, the start time of the CME is typically the time of the first observation, whereas the CME onset time would be much more significant).
The third working group will focus on cross-checking the information stored in catalogues in the HEC and HFC with the aim of evaluating the usability and data quality of the catalogues and therefore the overall quality of the HELIO infrastructure operations both from a science and from a technical point of view.
