Coronal Mass Ejections 

& Eruptions

Aims:    Characterize the magnetic configurations involved  before the lauch (e.g. twisted flux tube ?)
                   What is the origin of a CME/eruption  (e.g.  an ideal instability ?)
                   Is magnetic topology important ?   Is magnetic reconnection needed ?
