Solar radio emission is produced in the turbulent medium of the solar atmosphere, and its observed properties (source position, size, time profile, polarization, etc.) are significantly affected by the propagation of the radio waves from the emitter to the observer. Scattering of radio waves on random density irregularities has long been recognized as an important process for the interpretation of radio source sizes (e.g., Steinberg et al. 1971), positions (e.g., […]

In many space and astrophysical plasma contexts, shocks are considered as one of the most important mechanisms for accelerating charged particles up to relativistic speeds. Different types of shocks are present on the Sun. One of the most well-known types is shocks driven by coronal mass ejections (see, e.g., Morosan et al. 2019, and recent CESRA Nuggets by Mancuso et al., Chrysaphi et al., Zucca et al.). There is another […]
