4 x: projected s/c path - V HT Grad-Shafranov Reconstruction method: derive the axis orientation (z) and the cross section of locally 2 ½ D structure from in-situ single spacecraft measurements (e.g., Hu and Sonnerup 2002). Main features: - 2 ½ D - self-consistent - non-force free - flux rope boundary definition - multispacecraft actual result:

8 Comparison of CME and ICME fluxes ( independently measured for 9 events ; Qiu et al., 2007 ): - flare-associated CMEs and flux-rope ICMEs with one-to-one correspondence; - reasonable flux-rope solutions satisfying diagnostic measures; - an effective length L=1 AU (uncertainty range 0.5-2 AU).

Concluding Remarks Quantitative CME-ICME comparison provides essential insight into the underlying mechanism(s) Also provides validation of data analysis methods/results Torus-shaped geometry provides an alternative view of MC flux rope; will complement the existing analysis The effect of Te is limited to contribution to the plasma and pressure; it is the gradient of pressure that matters
