For a mission that has just entered its primary science phase, Solar Orbiter has already produced many remarkable results. Released on December 14, 2021, a special issue of Astronomy and Astrophysics brings together a wealth of studies and observations obtained during the mission’s cruise phase. Of the 56 articles published, 25 are based on data from the Radio & Plasma Waves (RPW) instrument (Maksimovic et al., A&A, 2020). The RPW […]

Estimating the kinematics of Type II radio-burst sources, which are recognized as a shock waves, using electron-density models is inaccurate and restricted. In this article, a blast-expansion technique is used for the first time for estimating the kinematics of a Type II radio-burst source without using electron-density models by studying the density variation along the leading surface of the coronal mass ejections (CMEs) (herein: ejecta) during Type-II radio-burst emission. This […]

Non-radial propagation of energetic electrons in solar corona by A. Klassen et al.

STEREO and near-Earth multi-spacecraft observations of solar energetic particle (SEP) events have revealed that some events show quite unexpected intensity distributions at 1 AU (Dresing et al. 2012, Lario et al. 2013). They can be much broader (circumsolar) (Gómez-Herrero et al. 2015), non-symmetric, and sometimes irregular showing so-called finger distribution (Klassen et al. 2016). It had been suggested that these non-symmetric and irregular distributions, among others, may result from non-radial […]
