Volumetric Data

Examples are given above of additional available measurements using UCSD 3D reconstruction analyses. The 28-29 halo CME event sequence is highlighted and measured as its dense structure reaches the vicinity of Earth.

The volumetric data used to produce these images is stored on UCSD servers. This volumetric data provides the images presented on this UCSD website using IDL programming available from the UCSD resources webpage, and that is also available through SolarSoft. This same 3D reconstruction technique and further modeling analysis using this technique, that includes an interactive data presentation capability, is available at the NASA Goddard Community Coordinate Modeling Center (CCMC). Other types of imaging, and further exploratory analyses are possible from these volumetric 3D reconstructions including measurements of mass, volume, and a measurement of kinetic energy for each structure viewed using a technique developed at UCSD (Yu et al., 2005; Jackson, et al., 2008; and see the Figure). These analyses using a volumetric imaging and manipulation system can be made available on a limited basis for individual volumetric density structures by staff at UCSD.
