Storms from the Sun--Coronal Mass Ejections

Storms from the Sun--Coronal Mass Ejections

This website showcases a 22" by 34" poster describes coronal mass ejections and how they affect life on Earth. The authors related CMEs to terrestrial weather, while describing (qualitatively) the physical processes that bring plasma and energy from the interior of the Sun to the surface and atmosphere of Earth. Designed for a broad public audience, the poster is perhaps most accessible to high school and bright middle school students. Several teachers and outreach professionals were consulted during development, and the poster includes resources and an activity for classroom use. Back of poster is laid out in panels that are easy to photocopy.
