General description

Full-Disk, high resolution SOOP designed to catch eruptive events.  


Triggers: enabled for both IS and RS

Observations requirement (baseline)

EUIGlobal Eruptive Event Mode: FSI Global eruptive event mode (G)Triggered:

EUI will be in global mode all the time (i.e. full SOOP length) but it will only prioritize the data of 1-2 events. 

Global mode generates 4,42 Gbit/hr. Let's say for now that we flush 2 hrs of data = ~8Gbits.


METIS standard modes: GLOBAL + CMEOBS on trigger

(modelled as 2 CME events of 1 hr in the 1-day-SOOP)

CME Trigger on

FDT, 2-5 minute cadence, highest spatial resolution
(PHI_nominal_FDT/HRT_0 with FDT and 5 mins cadence)

Selection of data so will check LLD
SoloHICombination of shock and synoptics at perihelionCombine HI_SHOCK_PER + HI_SYN_PER (each 50% of time)


SPICE Composition Mapping (or alternatively SPICE Dynamics at start,

then SPICE Waves mode (sit-and-stare)

Off-pointing would be interesting for SPICE, but even if disk-centre pointed Composition mapping or Dynamics (both with the maximum SPICE FOV) should be ran before running Waves sit-and-stare.

SPICE_WAVES has been used for modelling SAP v.0

Operational constraints 

Additional comments CME initiationFull Disk1 Day (limited by EUI/PHI internal memory)Perihelion preferred. Quadrature with Earth preferred. Interesting throughout the solar cycle.No offpointing beyond Metis limit.

EUI/PHI at highest cadence appropriate to spatial resolution (could be slower if further away). SPICE Sit & Stare in waves mode to try and catch EUV waves.

Metis Modes:

  • GLOBAL (before the event, if possible), min. obs time 2 hr, data volume ≤ 300 Mb.
  • CMEOBS, starts after CME flag rise, min. obs time 1 hr (high cadence, 1 min), data volume ~ 2.137 Gb.
  • GLOBAL (after the event), min. obs time 2 hr, data volume ≤ 300 Mb.
