No. 452, “Spatial Distribution of Magnetic Reconnection Rate in an M6.5 Solar Flare,” by Ju JING: Linking hard X-rays to high-resolution images that show reconnection rates.

No. 453, “Temporal and Spatial Characteristics of Hard X-Ray Sources in Flare Model with Vertical Current Sheet,” by Alexander SHABALIN, Eugenia OVCHINNIKOVA, and Yuri CHARIKOV: Modeling betatron acceleration in current-sheet development.

No. 454, “TeV Gamma rays from the Quiescent Sun,” by Mehr Un NISA and John Beacom: Solar photons at unprecedented high energies.

No. 455, “Introducing SunSketcher,” by Hugh HUDSON and Gordon EMSLIE: Galloping towards roundup in the 2024 total solar eclipse.

We welcome almost any contribution to the RHESSI Nuggets. The topic may wander some distance away from specifically RHESSI results if it is generally interesting. See http://sprg.ssl.berkeley.edu/~tohban/wiki/index.php/RHESSI_Science_Nuggets for these and others. Comments about specific flares can often be found by searching for their SOLyyyy-mm-dd identifier from this home page.
