High-cadence observations of spicular-type events on the Sun  

Juie Shetye   Submitted: 2016-02-01 02:20

Chromospheric observations taken at high cadence and high spatial resolution show a range of spicule like features, including Type I, Type II (as well as RBEs and RREs) and those which seem to appear within a few seconds, which if interpreted as flows would imply mass flow velocities in excess of 1000 km s-1. This article seeks to quantify and study rapidly appearing spicular type events. We also compare the MOMFBD and speckle reconstruction techniques in order to understand if such spicules are more favourably observed using a particular technique. We use spectral imaging observations taken with the CRISP on the Swedish 1 m Solar Telescope. Data was sampled at multiple positions within the Hα line profile for both an ondisk and limb location. The data is host to numerous rapidly appearing features which are observed at different locations within the Hα line profile. The feature's durations vary between 10 and 20 s and lengths around 3500 km. Sometimes, a time delay in their appearance between the blue and red wings of 3 and 5 s is evident, whereas sometimes they are near simultaneous. In some instances features are observed to fade and then re emerge at the same location several tens of seconds later. We provide the first statistical analysis of these spicules and suggest that these observations can be interpreted as the LOS movement of highly dynamic spicules moving in and out of the narrow 60 mA transmission filter used to observe in different parts of the Hα line profile. The LOS velocity component of the observed fast chromospheric features, manifested as Doppler shifts, are responsible for their appearance in the red and blue wings of Hα line. Additional work involving data at other wavelengths is required to investigate the nature of their possible wavelike activity.
