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 […]

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 […]
