"Extreme value statistics in the solar wind"

The solar wind is a turbulent plasma streaming from the sun
at a speed of the order of 10^5 metres per second. Its
interaction with the Earth's magnetic field is responsible
for the aurorae. On rare occasions it may also damage
satellites, threaten astronaut safety, or lead to power
blackouts as a result of intense geomagnetic storms. A
measure of the solar wind's power input into the Earth's
magnetosphere is given by the Akasofu epsilon parameter. In this
talk I analyse the time series of the epsilon parameter for extreme
bursts during the years 2000-2008. This analysis will include
not just the distribution of sizes of extreme bursts, but
also their return time statistics.
