RHESSI Nuggets in February 2018

February 21, 2018, from Hugh Hudson

No. 316, “Joint MinXSS and RHESSI Flare X-ray Spectra between 1 and 15 keV”, by Chris Moore, Brian Dennis, and the MinXSS Science Team. MinXSS adds systematic views of flare soft X-ray spectra to RHESSI imagery.

No. 317, “Non-Maxwellian Diagnostics from SDO/EVE spectra of an X-class flare,” by Jaroslav Dudik. Ratios of high-excitation ion lines can readily detect kappa distributions in flare plasmas.


listing the current series, 2008-present, and


for the original series, 2005-2008.

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