A primary goal of data-driven models is to understand solar events and their interplanetary and terrestrial consequences. Techniques range from simple and heuristic to comprehensive and dynamic. Input can be a single observation or require assimilation of multiple quantities mapped in four dimensions. Output can be an intermediate product or detailed global predictions. This session challenges us to think beyond the mechanics and share insights about how the system really works.
Forecasts have been improving, but sometimes fail. Some talks in this session focus on what have we learned from the curious events of January 2014.
