Towards an Empirical model of the Solar Wind Charge Exchange

Abstract : We present the preliminary results of the study of Solar Wind Charge eXchange (SWCX) based on a Suzaku Key Project and archival data. With a three-­‐year monitoring campaign of four nearby (~100 pc) high column density clouds that absorb almost all the background photons, the key project is focused on measuring the temporal evoluGon of the local soH X-­‐ray emission and characterizaGon of SWCX emission. Comparing the X-­‐ray emission with the product of the ACE and WIND satellites, we are developing a model of the SWCX X-­‐ray contribuGon as a funcGon of line of sight, posiGon of the Earth and Sun, and the flux of neutrals in the solar wind.
