ITN: One for our solar scientists .. all about CMEs:

Scientists unlock the secrets of exploding plasma clouds on the sun (http://www.physorg.com/news/2010-11-scientists-secrets-plasma-clouds-sun.html)

The analysis and theory testing was done by research by scientists at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in Washington, D.C.

I notice that there doesn't appear to be any statements concerning the origin mechanism of the CMEs, just yet. The model only confirms field strength, plasma properties and arrival times, at 1 AU.
