  • Abstract: This introductory article highlights current issues concerning two related phenomena involving mass emission from the sun: solar eruptions and solar energetic particles. A brief outline of the chapters is provided indicating how the current issues are addressed in the monograph. The sections in this introduction roughly group the chapters dealing with coronal mass ejections (CMEs), solar energetic particles (SEPs), shocks, and space weather. The concluding remarks include a brief summary of outstanding issues that drive current and future research on CMEs and SEPs.
