Abstract

The aim of this work is to summarize the main underlying assumptions, simplifications and uncertainties while studying solar energetic particles (SEPs). In general, numerous definitions are used for the evaluation of a given SEP parameter and these different methods lead to different outcomes for a given particle event. Several catalogs of SEP events from various instruments are currently available; however, each catalog is specific to the adopted data and analysis. We investigate the differences while comparing several SEP catalogs and outline probable reasons. We focus on SEP statistical studies and quantify the influences of the particle intensity, solar origin location and projection effects. We found that different definitions and criteria used for these parameters change the values of the correlation coefficients between the SEPs and their solar origin. (AU)
