78. Tracking flare chromospheric ionisation in the infrared
by Paulo Simões, Lyndsay Fletcher, Hugh Hudson (Glasgow), Graham Kerr (NASA GSFC), Guigue Giménez de Castro (Mackenzie), Matt Penn (NSO)

Observations and simulations together show how the infrared continuum tells us about a basic physical process in flares.

UKSP Nuggets are published on a monthly basis highlighting solar physics research led from the UK.
