Electromagnetic emissions at the third harmonic of the plasma frequency $\omega _{p}$ have been reported during the occurrence of type II and type III solar radio bursts (e.g. Zlotnik 1978, Zlotnik et al. 1998, Cairns; 1986), even if rarely and sometimes controversially. Recently the Wind spacecraft detected several events exhibiting third harmonic emissions in interplanetary type III bursts observed locally near 1 AU (Reiner and MacDowald; 2019). For the first […]
