The workshop will introduce data analysis of space-based white-light coronagraph observations and radio spectral observations from space and ground to study shocks driven by coronal mass ejections (CMEs). CME and space-based radio data have been accumulated at the CDAW Data Center of NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. The coronagraph images are from the ESA/NASA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) and NASA's Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO). Near-Sun manifestations of CMEs are obtained from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). In the heliosphere, in-situ observations from NASA's Wind and Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) missions will be used to track CME flux ropes into the interplanetary medium. In addition, ground based radio data from the e-CALLISTO and RSTN networks will be used for the studying near-Sun manifestation of CME-driven shocks inferred from type II radio bursts. In the interplanetary medium, the shocks are inferred from type II radio bursts at frequencies below ~16 MHz observed by Wind/WAVES and STEREO/WAVES instruments. Context information such as soft X-ray flares and solar energetic particle (SEP) events will be obtained from NOAA's GOES missions. This workshop will enable scientists and students in developing countries to analyze space- and ground-based data to investigate Earth-affecting solar transient phenomena. In particular, scientists from the Central Asia region will be targeted as participants (Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Armenia). After the workshop, the participants will be able to continue correlative data analysis on CMEs and shocks, thus contributing to the progress of this important field in Sun-Earth connection. The workshop is scheduled to be held during August 19-30, 2024. We will adopt COSPAR principles and will take care of the gender balance as well as a balance between junior and senior speakers as much as possible. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are also part of the arrangement, plus two coffee breaks.
