Explosive coronal events and other plasma phenomena

Such studies, correlated as described in the previous paragraphs, are primary aimed at the understanding of the various physical processes that occur within the active regions, and that trigger instability and the eruption of magnetic structures from the solar atmosphere, with consequent release of energy and material into interplanetary space (flares and similar events, eruption of prominences, CMEs). Important information on the initial phases of CME propagation in the outer corona will be acquired in the future, both via the white light and UV coronograph, proposed and designed by an Italian group for the "payload" of the SOLAR ORBITER mission, whose definition phase should begin within the next three years, and with ESA's technological mission ASPIICS.
