RHESSI Nuggets in February 2019February 22, 2019, from Hugh Hudson
No. 345, “A Energetic Pre-flare: Electron Distributions in Magnetic Reconnection Outflows,” by Marina BATTAGLIA, Eduard KONTAR, and Galina MOTORINA. Assessing energy partition in a very interesting pre-impulsive flare development.
No. 344, “Linear Polarization in H-alpha Flares,” by Tomoko KAWATE and Yoichiro HANAOKA. H-alpha polarization (perhaps implying electron beams) is rarely observable, but in one case there are suggstive results.
We welcome contributions to the RHESSI Nuggets, and the topics may wander some distance away from specifically RHESSI results if they are generally interesting. See
