Flare accelerated electrons emit light from X-rays to radio waves, which sometimes show highly regular and periodic intensity pulsations (Nakariakov et al. 2009). However, the processes that bring about these pulsations remains a hotly debated topic. The primary candidates are periodic magnetic reconnection, magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) oscillations, or some complex combination of both (Aschwanden et al. 1986, Nakariakov et al. 2006). Plasma dynamics of these processes can play out on timescales […]

Fibers are short metric/decimetric bursts with a drift rate between type II and type III bursts, usually appearing in groups embedded in type IV continua. In most cases they show both absorption and emission ridges, the absorption having a slightly lower frequency than the emission. They are, most probably, manifestations of whistler-Langmuir wave interaction and they travel upwards along post flare loops (Kuijpers 1975). In a recent work (Bouratzis et […]

Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) are sometimes accompanied by continuum emission at decimetric and metric wavelengths, called Type IV radio bursts. Of particular interest to determining CME properties are moving Type IV radio bursts, which are broadband radio sources moving outwards from the Sun. First studies suggested that moving Type IV bursts are emitted by synchrotron or gyro-synchrotron emitting electrons that are trapped inside CME loops (Dulk 1973). However, since their […]

Topical issue on solar radio physics published CESRA 2007 Workshop The CESRA workshop in 2007, titled Solar Radio Physics and the Flare-CME Relationship, was held at the University of Ioannina in Greece. Some 70+ participants attended the meeting, which consisted of invited and contributed talks in the mornings and working group discussions and presentations in the afternoons. The topics for the four working groups were 1) pre-flare and pre-CME phase, […]
