Imaging the sun at radio wavelengths with high fidelity is an intrinsically hard problem. This stems from: a) the large range of angular scales on which the emission is present; b) the huge difference in brightness temperature associated with the various emission mechanisms which are responsible for radio emission; and c) high variability of solar emission on small temporal (<1s) and spectral (~kHz) scales. These together imply that the uv […]

Type II solar radio bursts are the result of energetic electrons accelerated by a shock. This kind of burst appears on dynamic spectra as lanes which drift slowly from high to lower frequencies. Often, we observe a fundamental – harmonic structure, which sometimes exhibits a division on each band called band-split.  Fine structures are emissions with short duration and bandwidth embedded within all types of radio bursts and constitute a […]
