Linking Solar Eruptions and Energetic Particles through Observations and Modeling — •Frederic Effenberger — Helmholtz Centre, GFZ German Centre for Geosciences, Potsdam, Germany
The relation between different energetic particle populations accelerated in the solar atmosphere and detected in interplanetary space is not well established. Observational studies during the last years demonstrated the still poorly understood existence of a connection between solar flare signatures of accelerated particles at the Sun and the corresponding solar energetic particles (SEPs) detected at 1 AU. It is thus important to make progress towards answering the question: Under which circumstances do these two observations point to the same population of accelerated particles? Here, we will discuss recent progress concerned with this issue. We illustrate the potential for observations and simultaneous modeling of the escaping and precipitating electron populations to constrain the plasma properties of the flaring region and interplanetary medium. In particular, with the recently launched Parker Solar Probe and Solar Orbiter missions, which will explore the Sun from a close distance and with unprecedented detail, new insights into these questions can be expected. We emphasize the importance of such studies for the fundamental understanding of physical processes in space plasmas and for our space weather forecasting capabilities.
