Energy Storage and Release through the Solar Activity Cycle: Models Meet Radio Observations

Front Cover

Springer New York, Jun 16, 2012 - Science - 230 pages
For nearly sixty years, radio observations have provided a unique insight into the physics of the active and quiescent solar atmosphere. Thanks to the variety of emission mechanisms and to the large altitude range available to observations, fundamental plasma parameters have been measured from the low chromosphere to the upper corona and interplanetary medium.

This book presents current research in solar radio astronomy and shows how well it fits in the exceptional scientific context brought by the current space solar observatories. It essentially contains contributed research and review papers presented during the 2010 Community of European Solar Radio Astronomers (CESRA) meeting, which took place in Belgium in June 2010.

This book is aimed at graduate students and researchers working in solar physics and space science.

About the author (2012)

Dr. Marqué completed his PhD at the Paris Observatory in France, focusing on the imagery of the quiet solar corona. His research is also oriented towards radio signatures of solar eruptive events. He is currently working at the Royal Observatory of Belgium in Brussels, where he is in charge of ground based solar radio observations.

Dr. Nindos is an assistant professor at the Physics Department of the University of Ioannina, Greece. His research interests are generally focused on solar physics, with particular interest to solar radio astronomy and solar magnetic fields.
