LOFAR observations of fine spectral structure dynamics in type IIIb radio bursts View all abstracts by submitter

Solar radio emission features a large number of fine structures demonstrating great variability in frequency and time. We present spatially resolved spectral radio observations of type IIIb bursts in the 30-80 MHz range made by the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR). The bursts show well-defined fine frequency structuring called "stria" bursts. The spatial characteristics of the stria sources are determined by the propagation effects of radio waves; their movement and expansion speeds are in the range of 0.1-0.6c. Analysis of the dynamic spectra reveals that both the spectral bandwidth and the frequency drift rate of the striae increase with an increase of their central frequency; the striae bandwidths are in the range of ~20-100 kHz and the striae drift rates vary from zero to ~0.3 MHz s^-1. The observed spectral characteristics of the stria bursts are consistent with the model involving modulation of the type III burst emission mechanism by small-amplitude fluctuations of the plasma density along the electron beam path. We estimate that the relative amplitude of the density fluctuations is of dn/n~10-3, their characteristic length scale is less than 1000 km, and the characteristic propagation speed is in the range of 400-800 km s-1. These parameters indicate that the observed fine spectral structures could be produced by propagating magnetohydrodynamic waves.
