Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and the solar wind are the two main demonstrations of solar activity. These events can drive a shock wave. The shock wave occurs where the solar wind changes from being supersonic (with respect to the surrounding interplanetary medium) to subsonic. The main purpose of this study is to apply the algorithm and the results given in our recent papers to the shock wave that happened after the December 13, 2006 CME, and evaluate the behavior of entropy during this solar activity.
