Abstract

This report assesses the current status of research relating the origin at the Sun the evolution through the inner heliosphere and the effects on the inner heliosphere of the interplanetary counterparts of coronal mass ejections (ICMEs). The signatures of ICMEs measured by in-situ spacecraft are determined both by the physical processes associated with their origin in the low corona as observed by space-borne coronagraphs and by the physical processes occurring as the ICMEs propagate out through the inner heliosphere interacting with the ambient solar wind. The solar and in-situ observations are discussed as are efforts to model the evolution of ICMEs from the Sun out to 1 AU.
