Discovery of correlated evolution in noise storm source parameters: Insights on $\vec{B}$ dynamics during a microflare

Solar noise storms are known to be related to small and large scale magnetic field enhancements at active regions (Elgaroy 1977, Li et al.,2017). However, the mechanism still remain unclear. Their high spectro-temporal variability and ubiquity of weak events demanded sub-second and sub-MHz scale imaging with high dynamic ranges (DRs) to reliably study emission from individual sources. Using high DR snapshot spectroscopic images from the Murchison Widefield Array, this work […]

Radio and X-ray Observations of Short-lived Episodes of Electron Acceleration in a Solar Microflare
by R. Sharma et al.

2021-03-30 128 views

In a solar flare, the plasma is locally heated and particles are accelerated to energies from a few tens of keV to MeVs. X-ray bremsstrahlung emission and radio gyrosynchrotron emission are highly complementary and provide diagnostics of the timing, location and spectral properties of flare-accelerated electrons in a broad energy range. Here we present comprehensive observations of multiple individual bursts during a GOES B1.7-class (back-ground subtracted) microflare observed jointly in […]

Analyzing the propagation of EUV waves and their connection with type II radio bursts by combining numerical simulations and multi-instrument observations
by A. Koukras et al.*

EUV (EIT) waves are wavelike disturbances of enhanced extreme ultraviolet (EUV) emission that propagate away from an eruptive region. Recent years have seen much debate over their nature, with three main interpretations: the fast-mode MHD wave, the apparent wave (reconfiguration of the magnetic field), and the hybrid wave (combination of the previous two). Observations of such waves are often accompanied by type II radio bursts, which are widely considered as signature […]

On the occurrence of type IV solar radio bursts in the solar cycle 24 and their association with coronal mass ejections
by A. Kumari et al. *

Coronal mass ejections are large eruptions of magnetized plasma from the Sun (Webb et. al. 2012) that are often accompanied by radio emission, generated by the energetic electrons produced during these eruptions (Gopalswamy et. al. 2004). These electrons can generate radio emission in the corona through various emission mechanisms (Melrose, 1980). The most common radio bursts associated with CMEs are type II and type IV bursts. CMEs are often accompanied […]

VLA Measurements of Faraday Rotation through a Coronal Mass Ejection Using Multiple Lines of Sight by J. E. Kooi et al.*

2021-02-16 131 views

The Sun is the main source of space weather, and one type of solar event that is critical to space weather is a coronal mass ejection. Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) are large eruptions of magnetized plasma from the Sun that produce energetic particles, which can cause geomagnetic storms on Earth. One method that has proven successful in determining the strength and structure of the coronal magnetic field is Faraday rotation […]

Propagation Effects in Quiet Sun Observations at Meter Wavelengths
by R. Sharma and D. Oberoi

2021-02-02 171 views

The quiet Sun coronal emission dominantly comes from thermal bremsstrahlung. As this radiation traverses the coronal medium on its way to the Earthbound observer, the coronal optical depth, τ, along typical ray paths is neither low enough to be approximated as optically thin, nor high enough to be treated as optically thick. On its way to the observer, it gets modified substantially due to propagation effects —primarily refraction and scattering—through the […]

Electromagnetic Emission Produced by Three-wave Interactions in a Plasma with Continuously Injected Counterstreaming Electron Beams
by Vladimir Annenkov and Igor Timofeev

2021-01-19 191 views

Weakly turbulent processes of three-wave interactions between Langmuir and electromagnetic waves in plasma with unstable electron flows are believed to be the main cause of type II and III solar radio emissions. The narrow band of type II bursts requires assuming that this radiation is generated in some local regions of shock fronts traveling in the solar corona, where the specific conditions for the enhancement of electromagnetic emissions near the […]

An Explanation of Subsecond Time Evolution of Type III Solar Radio Burst Sources at Fundamental and Harmonic Frequencies
by X. Chen et al

2020-12-14 227 views

Recent studies (Kontar et al. 2017) of a Type III–IIIb burst observed by LOFAR (van Haarlem et al. 2013) indicated that the temporal variations in the positions and source sizes do not fit into the standard picture of type III solar radio bursts and require a better understanding of radio-wave transport. With the aim of explaining the observed properties of type III–IIIb solar radio bursts, we use radio-wave simulations of radio-wave […]
