Title: Solar flare of 15 February 2011 and its geomagnetic effects
Authors: Kane, R P
Keywords: Solar flare
Geomagnetic storms
Interplanetary coronal mass ejection
Issue Date: Oct-2011
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
PACS No.: 96.60.ph; 96.60.qe
Abstract: The link between solar flares and geomagnetic storms is: Solar flare, associated coronal mass ejection (CME) leading to the subsequent interplanetary CME (ICME) which follows and engulfs the Earth and its geo-effectiveness due to a large negative Bz component of the ICME magnetic field B. During the giant flare of 15 February 2011, the last link, namely a substantial negative Bz, was absent and hence, only a very weak geomagnetic storm resulted.
