[49.06] Radio Signatures of Coronal Mass Ejections

A. Vourlidas (Naval Research Laboratory)

The SOHO mission and in particular the LASCO/EIT imaging of the near-Sun enviroment brought the study of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) to the forefront of solar physics research. Solar radiophysics, especially in low frequencies have benefited from the renewed interest on outer corona events and the availability of new or renovated radio instruments both in space and on the ground. Now spectrometric and imaging observations of CMEs and related phenomena are routinely available and their analysis has begun to contribute important insights to the physics of CMEs. In this paper, I review the significant amount of radio CME work that has accumulated since the beggining of the current solar cycle and outline the ways in which radio coronal observations could become even more important in the future.
