We present the monthly mean of CME parameters for cycle 23 and 24, and some selected outliers as in (a) The monthly total sunspot number (SSN) for cycle 23, the sunspot area (Northern Hemisphere (SSANH) and Southern Hemisphere (SSASH)) and the total sunspot area (SSAT) estimated by summing the sunspot areas in both hemisphere.

For the data for CME parameters, we started by debugging, so as to free data from any symbol that may affect analyses. Then

a. We calculated the daily average, then weekly average and eventually monthly average, for ALL CMEs

b. Then, (a) was performed on the following segregated CMEs

- Wide [> 120
0], normal [>500<1200], narrow. (Forbes, 2000)
- Slow [400km/s], fast [400km/s] for linear speed.(Schwenn, 2006)
- CME with positive and negative acceleration. (Chen and Krall, 2003)

In Fig. 1 We show the monthly total sunspot number (SSN), the sunspot area for the northern hemisphere (SSANH), Southern Hemisphere (SSASH), and the total sunspot area (SSAT) estimated by summing the sunspot areas in both southern and northern hemisphere.

The tracers of solar activity all show a double-hump structure as reported by Ramesh and Kilcik; with SSN showing least in variations. The double-peak structure is due to the existence of two surges of toroidal fields (Georgieva, 2011) SSANH, SSASH, SSAT and SSN shows an almost exactly same trend with SSN and SSAT with exactly same behavior for cycle 23; noticeable is a general drip just before April 2001 but for cycle 24 the trends are not exactly as it is for cycle 23; SSAT and SSAH shows similar trend while SSNH different between April 2012 and December 2014. SSN for cycle 24 differs very much in trend to other sunspot tracers except from December 2014 to the end of the cycle for which trend is similar to other sunspot tracers. SSN for cycle 24 shows a much weaker cycle compared to cycle 23. SSN coincided with SSAT in cycle 23 (behaved exactly the same). SSN for cycle 24 shows much reduced Sunspot number compared to cycle 23.

**ANALYSIS FOR SPEED AT 20R**

Cycle 23 started rising and then declined slightly. It peaked highest in Jan, 2004. In cycle 24, it maintained a horizontal trend; its highest peak was in July, 2009. (Fig 2) Wide 23 follows a more parabolic shape compared to other CME sizes. Narrow 23 also has a parabolic shape but not like wide 23. Other CME sizes follow a more horizontal linear trend. All the CMEs angular sizes (wide, normal and narrow) follow the solar cycle except that for cycle 24, it lags it by 3 months. (Fig 3).

Cycle 23 started rising and then declined slightly. It peaked highest in Jan, 2004.

Slow 23 and fast 23 shows a rising trends. Fast 24 peak to somewhere in between April 2012 to Dec. 2014, and then maintained a somewhat linear trend and then peaked again. Slow 24 follows a horizontal linear trend (Fig 4). None of them follows the solar cycle. PA 23 and NA 23 shows similar trend up to somewhere around Oct. 2008 in most cases, the cycles peak with at same time in a month for instance they both have highest peaks in Jan. 2004. However, PA 24 and NA 24 do not have same trend and peak behavior. PA 24 shows a more linear trend while NA 24 show parabolic trend, except for CMEs with positive acceleration others follows the sunspot cycle. Cycle 23 lags the sunspot cycle by 3months while cycle 24 leads by 3months. (Fig 5).

CMEs with zero speed at 20R appeared more frequently. But the frequency of CMEs between 100 – 1000km/s shows an almost normal distribution but slightly skewed to the right. Then the frequency rose again for CMEs above 1000km/s. Number of events for cycle 23 is 11,350 while those cycle 24 is 17836. Peak value for speed at 200 for All CMEs happened at 0km/s. The average speed values are 368 and 352km/s for cycle 23 and 24 respectively. The speed range is 0 to a little above 1000km/s (Fig 4). For wide CMEs, cycle 23 and 24 has 1226 and 1367 events respectively. Peak value for speed at 20R for wide CMEs happened at 600km/s for both cycle. The average speed values are 849 and 694km/s. for cycle 23 and 24 respectively. The speed range is 0-2800km/s. (Fig 5). For normal CMEs, cycle 23 and 24 has 3890 and 3828 respectively. Peaks values for normal CMEs are 800 and 600km/s for cycle 23 and 24 respectively. The most probable speed for cycles 23 and 24 is 519 and 453km/s respectively. The range is 0 – 1500km/s. (Fig 6). For narrow angle CMEs, total distribution of CME events for cycle 23 and 24 are 5589 and 7294. Peak value for narrow CMEs is 0km/s for both cycles. The most probable speed for both cycle 23 and 24 are 537 and 569 respectively. The range is 0-2600km/s. (Fig 7). After the initial speed of 0km/s a large depression was seen at 200km/s for all the categories of CMEs except for all low distribution for speed at 0km/s relative to other categories.

(Fig 8). For slow speed, cycle 23 has 7872 number of CME events while cycle 24 has 11190. Peak value for slow CMEs is 400km/s for both cycles. The most probable speed for cycle 23 and 24 are 427 and 456 respectively. The range is 0 – 2200km/s. (Fig 9). For fast CMEs, cycle 23 and 24 has 5700 and 4284 CMEs respectively. Peak value for fast CMEs is 600km/s for both cycles. The most probable speed for cycle 23 and 24 are 724 and 739km/s respectively. The speed range is 0-3200km/s. (Fig 10). Distribution for positive acceleration shows 7428 and 9450 CME events for cycle 23 and 24 respectively. Peak value for cycle 23 and 24 400 and 600 respectively for cycle 23 and 24. The range is 200-4200km/s. (Fig 11) Negative acceleration shows 6140 and 6028 as number of event for cycle 23 and cycle 24 respectively. Peak value exist at 0km/s. The most probable speed for cycle 23 and 24 are 314 and 207 respectively. The range is 0-1600km/s.

After the initial speed of 0km/s a large depression was seen at 200km/s for all the categories of CMEs except for all low distribution for speed at 0km/s relative to other categories.

**ANALYSIS FOR FORCE**

Fig 12 shows distribution of force for All CMEs. CME distribution for force shows multiple peaks. Highest CME peaks occurred at 2.00 x 1013 N for both cycles. Predominant peak for cycle is 2.00 x 1013 N. Cycle 23 has a total of 12485 CMEs while cycle 24 has 17836 CMEs (Fig 12).

For cycle 23; All CMEs, normal CMEs, fast CMEs, CMEs with positive acceleration, CMEs with negative acceleration, slow CMEs, and narrow CMEs show similar trend. However, Normal CMEs, slow CMEs and CMEs with positive acceleration did not dip around year 2001 like others. Also, normal CMEs and fast CMEs did not peak in 2007 like other CMEs. Wide CMEs shows less variation and didn’t quite follow the trend like others.

For cycle 24; All CMEs and normal CMEs shows a more similar trend compared to others. The CME plots all seem to dip in 2018. Narrow CMEs shows a more varying normalized yearly average between the years 2011 and 2016.
