RHESSI Science Nuggets in October 2017

October 27, 2017, from Hugh Hudson

No. 309, “Electron Scattering in the Flaring Corona,” by Sophie Musset: Diffusive transport may contribute to the trapping of energetic electrons in coronal hard X-ray sources.

No. 310, “Valderrama in the 21st Century,” by Hugh Hudson: A newly-describd white-light flare from the 19th century, chronologically the third-ever observed flare.

See http://sprg.ssl.berkeley.edu/~tohban/wiki/index.php/RHESSI_Science_Nuggets listing the current series, 2008-present, and http://sprg.ssl.berkeley.edu/~tohban/nuggets/forthe 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.
