Global Energetics of Solar Flares and Coronal Mass Ejections

Abstract : We investigate the global energetics and energy closure of various physical processes that are energetically important in solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs), which includes: magnetic energies, thermal energies, nonthermal energies (particle acceleration), direct and indirect plasma heating processes, kinetic CME energies, gravitational CME energies, aerodynamic drag of CMEs, solar energetic particle events, EUV and soft X-ray radiation, white-light, and bolometric energies. Statistics on these forms of energies is obtained from 400 GOES M-and X-class events during the first 3.5 years of the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) mission. A
