Same as Figure 2 but in this case, we included the simulated profiles obtained with the model MEDIUM (shown in green line) and our closest model model, in which we reduced the solar wind speed: +8% and increased the CME mass-loss rate ~50% (in amber line). The in situ data obtained by WIND are shown in black lines with a smooth of 15 min to make it comparable to our computational time-resolution. We have delimited in purple vertical solid lines our results for the duration of the compression region and the rarefaction zone. Whereas with amber dotted lines we have marked the end of the density plateau inside the compression region and the time in which the density return to the SW density value.
