New RHESSI Science Nuggets

January 26, 2018, from Hugh Hudson

No. 313, “Tecumseh’s Eclipse and Astrophysics,” by Hugh Hudson: The solar corona was first recognized as actually being solar, and given that name by Jose Joaquin de Ferrer y Cafranga, in an historically interesting eclipse of 1806 (December 25, 2017).

No. 314, “A Curious Sunspot Group in 2018,” by Hugh Hudson: The first new sunspot group of 2018 emerged at the wrong latitude, or else with the wrong polarity (January 14, 2018).

No. 315, “Parametrized Flare Models with Chromospheric Compressions,” by Adam Kowalski and Joel Allred: A new approach to modeling the lower solar atmosphere during flaring (January 17, 2018).


listing the current series, 2008-present, and

for the original series, 2005-2008.

We publish these at roughly two-week intervals and welcome contributions,
which should be related, at least loosely, to RHESSI science.
