CMEs can be the sources of space-weather disturbances. Shock waves expanding ahead of fast CMEs and associated flares are the probable sources of energetic protons. Two categories of CMEs have traditionally been identified depending on the presence of conspicuous chromospheric emissions during their development. Flare-associated CMEs erupt from active regions, carry stronger magnetic fields, can reach higher speeds and cause stronger space-weather disturbances. Non-flare-associated CMEs develop in eruptions of large […]

We study a solar eruptive prominence with flare/coronal mass ejection (CME) event by microwave and extreme ultraviolet (EUV) observations. Its evolution can be divided into three phases: slow rise, fast expansion, and ejection. In the slow-rise phase, the prominence continuously twists for more than one hour with a patch of bright emission appearing around the top. When the north leg interacts with the local small-size loops, the fast expansion is […]
