Plots are in GSE (geocentric solar ecliptic) coordinates, so Earth is at [0,0], the Sun is at [1,0]. The plot is the projection of the orbit on the ecliptic plane.
9th orbit in EMP: 3 RS windows, N and S windows reach max latitude ~33º ; relatively far perihelion at 0.38AU.
RS window (default) placement
- connection science goals on slow solar wind sources. These require modelling to find the most likely connection point.
SOOPs L_SMALL_MRES_MCAD_Connection_Mosaic combined with L_SMALL_HRES_HCAD_SlowWindConnection (higher res/cadence RS to explore source region in more detail) or L_SMALL_MRES_MCAD_Ballistic-connection
If we happen to point at a coronal hole boundary, also the SOOP L_SMALL_HRES_LCAD_CH_Boundary_Expansion fits.
- perihelion window also suitable to study CME initiation and structure (close to the Sun), with pointing to ARs. Earth context preferred for modelling and CME context: R_SMALL_HRES_HCAD_AR-Dynamics
