CME Speed and Angular Width Distributions During 23 and 24 Solar Cycle Maximum

Author(s): Bidhu SS, Iren Sobia A and Dickson Benjamin A

The present work is carried out to analyze the distribution of linear speed and angular distribution of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) present during 23 and 24 solar cycle maximum phase, which were obtained by Large Angle and Spectrometric Coronagraph of SOHO. Solar wind speed and angular width decide the nature of the CME. Despite of the fact that 24 solar cycle is a weaker one, observe more number of CMEs than 23 solar cycle throughout the solar maximum. Also 24 solar cycle observes more CMEs with slow solar wind than 23 solar cycle within this specific time.
