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 […]

Flaring activity on the Sun triggers waves and oscillations in the solar corona. The study of these waves and oscillations allows comparisons to magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) theory and modelling to be made, and seismological inversions based on this comparison allow local plasma parameters to be measured indirectly (e.g. De Moortel & Nakariakov 2012). Simultaneous EUV imaging and radio observations make it possible to study how these waves and oscillations can produce […]

It has been theoretically predicted (Roberts et al. 1983, 1984) that the periodicity of magnetoacoustic modes can be modified by the time evolution of an impulsively generated signal. One of the obvious sources of such a disturbance is the impulsive flare process. These magnetoacoustic waves are trapped in regions with higher density (e.g., in coronal loops) acting as waveguides. The impulsively generated wave in such a coronal waveguide exhibits three […]
