Summary:We propose to examine the flare and coronal mass ejection (CME) signatures of the polar crown prominence eruptions to test the hypothesis that the high latitude CMEs are similar to the low-latitude ones. In particular, we look for CME acceleration similar to the flare acceleration. The filter ratio method will be applied to the SDO/AIA images at 94 and 171 A to obtain the temperature evolution of post-eruption arcades. SDO and STEREO images will be combined to obtain CME kinematics.
