Abstract

Well-developed filament channels may be present in the solar atmosphere even when there is no trace of filament material inside them. Such magnetic systems with filament channels without filaments can result in coronal mass ejections that might appear to have no corresponding solar surface source regions. In this case study, we analyze CMEs on 9 August 2001 and 3 March 2011 and trace their origins to magnetic systems with filament channels containing no obvious filament material on the days around the eruptions.
