Abstract

Supporting the growing field of space weather forecasting, we propose a framework to analyze ensemble simulations of coronal mass ejections. As the current simulation technique requires manual input, uncertainty is introduced into the simulation pipeline leading to inaccurate predictions. Using our system, the analyst can compare ensemble members against ground truth data (arrival time and geoeffectivity) as well as information derived from satellite imagery. The simulations can be compared globally, based on time-resolved quality measures, and as a 3D volumetric rendering with embedded satellite imagery in a multi-view setup. This flexible framework provides the expert with the tools to increase the knowledge about the, as of yet not fully understood, principles behind the evolution and propagation of coronal mass ejections.
