Lectures and hands-on sessions

a) Participants should have a basic knowledge of Python. However, there will be refresher lectures on Python. A pocket guide for installing Anaconda with Python 3.7 and Spyder will be made available on the workshop web site. It is recommended that Anaconda be downloaded from: https://www.anaconda.com/download/. All lectures on Python will be made available online as a zip-file. The participants will be asked to download the ZIP-file (~74 MB) and create a subfolder in their workshop folder. It is important that the participants download and install all programs, tools and libraries BEFORE the workshop to save time and avoid connectivity issues. The organizers will provide some Python support outside the workshop hours.

b) Overview of SOHO, STEREO, SDO, ACE, RSTN, and CALLISTO instruments and their instrumental products. The workshop will focus on data analysis of space-based white-light coronagraph observations and radio spectral observations from space and ground to study shocks driven by CMEs.

c) An overview of coronagraph data from space missions that can be effectively combined with ground-based observations to make significant progress in some key issues in space science.

d) We will then go through exercises to analyze space- and ground-based data to investigate Earth-affecting solar transient phenomena. 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 students will be divided into 5 or 6 groups. Each group will be assigned two Sun-to-Earth events, which will be analyzed during the workshop. Each group will be mentored by one of the lecturers.
