Tackling the Unique Challenges of Low-frequency Solar Polarimetry with the Square Kilometre Array Low Precursor: The Algorithm by Devojyoti Kansabanik et al

2022-08-23 90 views

The solar corona comprises hot magnetized plasma. Coronal magnetic fields are well known to be one of the crucial parameters determining the physics of the solar corona and are vital drivers of Space Weather. Despite the fact that the importance of coronal magnetic fields has been recognised for a long, in practice, they remain rather hard to measure. The polarization properties of coronal emission at low radio frequencies can, in […]

Langmuir-Slow Extraordinary Mode Magnetic Signature Observations with Parker Solar Probe
by A. Larosa et al

2022-05-03 138 views

Langmuir-Slow extraordinary mode (L-SE) waves have been routinely observed in the Solar wind and in Earth’s electron foreshock since the early age of the space exploration. They are intimately connected to the plasma emission mechanism for the type III and type II radio emissions. In fact, the generally accepted scenario is that L-SE waves are mode-converted to freely propagating electromagnetic emission at the plasma frequency. However,  the details of the […]

LOFAR size and shape measurements of solar metric radio burst sources
by Gordovskyy et al

The plasma density and magnetic field in the upper solar corona and inner heliosphere are not sufficient to produce detectable bremsstrahlung hard X-ray or gyrosynchrotron microwave emissions, making metric and decametric coherent radio emissions the only tool for probing energetic electrons in these layers of the solar atmosphere (e.g. McLean & Labrum 1985; Pick & Vilmer 2008 as reviews). This source of information is vital to understanding the underlying mechanisms […]

Radio, X-ray and extreme-ultraviolet observations of weak energy releases in the ‘quiet’ Sun
by Ramesh et. al.

2021-10-26 141 views

Small scale energy releases on the Sun e.g., flaring bright points, active region transient brightenings, etc. have been studied using X-ray and radio observations. The observations of low frequency radio type III bursts in associated with X-ray bright point flares (Kundu et. al. 1980) and coronal X-ray jets (Aurass et. al. 1994) indicated that the latter are capable of accelerating particles to non-thermal energies, as well as producing the heated […]

The active region source of a type III radio storm observed by Parker Solar Probe during encounter 2
by L. Harra et al*

2021-09-16 318 views

During encounter 2 of NASA’s PSP mission there was a large amount of radio activity and, in particular, a noise storm of frequent, small type III bursts from 31 March to 6 April 2019. Our aim is to investigate the source of these small and frequent bursts. We studied the behaviour of active region 12737, whose emergence and evolution coincides with the timing of the radio noise storm and determined the […]

Split-Band Feature of a Solar Flare Termination Shock
by Chen et al

2019-11-12 278 views

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 […]

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

2018-09-04 441 views

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*

2018-08-21 615 views

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 […]
