Summary:Prediction of solar active region emergence, growth, and energetic activity is central to the objectives of LWS and is needed for determining periods of time which will be safe for extra-vehicular activity by the crews of the ISS, Space Shuttles, and future long term missions. In order to address the Focused Science Topic predict the emergence of solar active regions before they are visible, we propose a comprehensive study consisting of three main components: (1) local helioseismic measurements of preemergent and emerged active regions using MDI/SOHO and HMI/SDO data; (2) semi-analytical and numerical modeling of the helioseismic signatures expected for preemergent and emerged active regions; and (3) statistical searches for helioseismic predictors of active region emergence, evolution, and energetic activity.
