Proposed SOOP Coordinators

D. Spadaro, A. Vourlidas, D. Williams


Synoptic SOOP designed for CME science and global coronal structure. Typically runs for a whole RS window.

Default SOOP duration: 10 days

Pointing requirements: disk centre

Triggers: IS + Metis triggers active

EUIFSI Synoptic mode (S)10 min cadence


METIS standard modes: GLOBAL mode,
METIS special modes CMEOBS whenever triggered
(model as max 3 CMEs per RSW)
CME Watch On
PHIFDT Synoptics: PHI_synoptic_FDT_4 with 6hr cadence6 hour cadence
SoloHINormal Operations: SYN + SHOCK (at perihelion)
(modelled as HI_SYN_NEAR for now) 

STIXSTIX Normal Mode
EPDNormal + Burst Mode
MAGNormal + Burst Mode
RPWDetection ModeBurst Triggers Active
SWANormal + Burst Mode

(e.g., orbital requirements, solar cycle phase, quadrature ...)

Additional comments CME structureFull DiskLong DurationQuadrature ideal, perihelion would be best, but useful at all distances.No OffpointsFor EUI could do onboard prioritisation to increase cadence - discard 9/10 images unless there's a trigger. CME evolutionFull DiskLong DurationHigher latitude orbits particularly interesting. Angular Separation from other spacecraft is a bonusNo OffpointsTemperature evolution from Metis in UV

Metis compatibleCoordination with SPP is a bonus What is the distribution of the open magnetic flux?

SPP important to have Heating in flaring loops vs heating in active regionsFull DiskLong DurationMore statistical study: having STIX on, observing all the flares and using EUI synoptics to find out about the source regionN/A Evaluate how significantly large flares contribute directly to gradual SEP eventsCorona & Heliosphere


Near perihelion in order to get 'as-pure-as -possible' signalMetis compatible

FSI 10 min cadence (default)

SoloHI, Metis, STIX

Low resolution does not seem to be a problem Hard X-ray emission of escaping electron beams (thin-target emission) 



Near perihelion to get best spatial resolution with STIX


STIX X-ray emission from electrons accelerated at CME shocks 

Corona & Heliosphere


NOT at PerihelionMetis compatibleRPW



We cannot hunt for this event (too specific requirements: CME lifting off from behind the limb to shield the X-rays from AR footpoints, to allow STIX to observe hard X-rays from shock) and we hope we get it for free through this SOOP
