A comparison of CME and SEP kinetic energies for seventeen SEP events is shown in Fig. 4.31.3.

Fig. 4.31.3. A comparison SEP and CME kinetic energies for 17 SEP events including the April 21, 2002 event (open square), the five events from October-November 2003 (circles) and 11 other events observed from 1998-2003. From Mewaldt et al. (2005a).

Mewaldt et al. (2005a) note that the CME kinetic energies range from ~ 3 x 10
