During solar events (such as flares or CME), energetic protons are accelerated in interplanetary medium. These particles are called briefly SEP (solar energetic particles). We estimated the SEP contribution to solar wind pressure. We used data collected by ACE and GOES, in particular during 4 periods, each one of 15 days. Each period is centered on a significant solar flare. We investigated possible effects on terrestrial geomagnetic field.

Abstract

During solar events (such as flares or CME), energetic protons are accelerated in interplanetary medium. These particles are called briefly SEP (solar energetic particles). We estimated the SEP contribution to solar wind pressure. We used data collected by ACE and GOES, in particular during 4 periods, each one of 15 days. Each period is centered on a significant solar flare. We investigated possible effects on terrestrial geomagnetic field.
