Alternative zebra-structure models in solar radio emission
by Chernov G.P.

2018-10-02 204 views

There is ongoing discussion in the literature about the nature of zebra-structure (ZS) in type IV radio bursts (Chernov, 2011).  We showed the possibility of a model with whistler waves to explain many thin components of ZS stripes, taking into account the effects of scattering of the whistlers on fast particles. Here, we show some complex examples of observations of ZS bursts in different wave ranges, which are difficult to […]

Size distributions of solar proton events and their asso-ciated soft X-ray flares based on the maximum likelihood estimator

It has been known for some time that the size distributions of solar radio bursts and soft X-ray (SXR) flares have steeper power-law slopes (~1.8) than those (~1.2) of solar energetic proton (SEP) events. Hudson (1978) suggested three possibilities for this difference: (1) proton flares are fundamentally different from ordinary flares; (2) proton flares represent the large end of the total energy distribution of ordinary flares; and (3) proton flare […]

Decimetric emission 500 arcseconds away from a flaring site: Possible scenarios from GMRT solar radio observations
by Bisoi et al.*

The displaced positions of radio sources away from the true source locations are usually observed in radio images at metric and decimetric wavelengths (Duncan 1979, Benz et al. 2002, Kundu et al., 2006, Kontar et al., 2017, Mann et al., 2018). The displaced radio source location is the apparent source position, that result from the scattering of radio waves (Kontar et al. 2017) or by coronal propagation effects (Mann et […]

Modulation of radio emission, fast magnetoacoustic waves and magnetic field measurements in the solar corona with LOFAR
by Kolotkov et al*

Fast magnetoacoustic wave trains are a promising seismological probe of the corona, revealing the magnetic connectivity and providing the estimation of the absolute value of the coronal magnetic field. Low-frequency radio observations allow for the detection of fast wave trains in middle and upper corona, above the field-of-view of EUV imagers and spectrographs, via the modulation of the radio emission by the variations of the electron concentration. We present the […]

An Extreme-ultraviolet Wave Generating Upward Secondary Waves in a Streamer-like Solar Structure
by Ruisheng Zheng et al.*

2018-08-07 305 views

Extreme-ultraviolet (EUV) waves are spectacular horizontally propagating disturbances in the low solar corona. If an EUV wave encounters an ambient coronal structure it may trigger another horizontal wave, which is always named a ‘secondary wave’ (SW). We present the first example of upward SWs in a streamer-like structure, a bright loop-like structure developing over an active region, after the passing of an EUV wave. The EUV wave was associated with […]

Long-lasting injection of solar energetic electrons into the heliosphere

The solar energetic particle (SEP) event from 26 Dec 2013 was a so-called widespread event observed by multiple spacecraft. The two STEREO and one close to Earth spacecraft spanned a total longitudinal angle of 210 degrees at that time. Together with the 25 Feb 2014 (Lario et al., 2016, Klassen et al., 2016) this is the widest event ever observed with the STEREO spacecraft. Unusually long-lasting SEP anisotropies together with […]

Statistical Analysis of Solar Events Associated with storm sudden commencements in the magnetosphere
by K. Bocchialini et al.*

We developed an innovative approach by studying each Earth-directed event leading to a storm sudden commencement (SSC) in the magnetosphere during 2002 (maximum activity of Cycle 23). This unprecedented, comprehensive study consists of: i) starting from the list of 32 SSCs listed by the International Service of Geomagnetic Indices (ISGI) of the Observatory de l’Ebre, ii) linking each SSC to a CME, iii) filling in the observational gaps along the […]

Topical issue “Solar radio physics from the chromosphere to near Earth” published
by E.P Kontar and A. Nindos

The 2016 CESRA workshop ( had a special emphasis on the complementarity of current and future space-based observations with ground-based radio observations. It was the place to discuss the new exciting science opportunities that arise from radio instruments such as the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), the Expanded Owens Valley Solar Array (EOVSA), the Expanded Very Large Array (EVLA), the Low Frequency array (LOFAR), the Mingantu Spectral Radioheliograph (MUSER), and […]
