7 Acknowledgments

We thank the editors of Living Reviews in Solar Physics, especially R. Schwenn who solicited this article and helped in its preparation. We benefitted from data from the SOHO mission, which is an international collaboration between NASA and ESA, and also from the SOHO/LASCO CME catalog, generated and maintained by the Center for Solar Physics and Space Weather, The Catholic University of America in cooperation with NRL and NASA. We thank N. Gopalswamy and S. Yashiro for helping us with their group’s latest LASCO CME results. We also thank A. Vourlidas, S. Kahler, and J. Raymond for providing material for this article. The Solar Mass Ejection Imager (SMEI) instrument is a collaborative project of the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory, NASA, the University of California at San Diego, the University of Birmingham, UK., Boston College, and Boston University. The STEREO SECCHI Heliospheric Imager (HI) instrument was developed by a collaboration that included the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and the University of Birmingham, both in the United Kingdom, the Centre Spatial de Liège (CSL), Belgium, and the US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), Washington DC, USA. The SECCHI project is an international consortium of the Naval Research Laboratory, Lockheed Martin Solar and Astrophysics Lab, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, University of Birmingham, Max-Planck-Institut für Sonnensystemforschung, Centre Spatial de Liège, Institut d’Optique Théorique et Appliquée, and Institut d’Astrophysique Spatiale. This work was supported at Boston College by Air Force contracts AF19628–00–K–0073 and FA8718–04–C–0006 and by NASA grant NNGO5GF98G. TAH is funded in part by SHINE Competition grant no. ATM-0849916 and NASA SHP grant no. NNX10AC05G.
