Evolution of Solar Eruptive Events: Investigating the Relationships Among Magnetic Reconnection, Flare Energy Release, and Coronal Mass Ejections View all abstracts by submitter

We study the evolution of solar eruptive events by investigating the temporal relationships among magnetic reconnection, flare energy release, and the acceleration of coronal mass ejections (CMEs). Leveraging the optimal viewing geometry of the Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory (STEREO) relative to the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) and the Reuven Ramaty High-Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (RHESSI) during 2010-2013, we identify 12 events with sufficient spatial and temporal coverage for a detailed examination. STEREO and SDO data are used to measure the CME kinematics and the reconnection rate, respectively, and hard X-ray (HXR) measurements from RHESSI provide a signature of the flare energy release. This analysis expands upon previous solar eruptive event timing studies by examining the fast-varying features, or ''bursts,'' in the HXR and reconnection rate profiles, which represent episodes of energy release. Through a time lag correlation analysis, we find that HXR bursts occur throughout the main CME acceleration phase for most events, with the HXR bursts lagging the acceleration by 2 9 minutes for fast CMEs. Additionally, we identify a nearly one-to-one correspondence between bursts in the HXR and reconnection rate profiles, with HXRs lagging the reconnection rate by 1.4 2.8 minutes. The studied events fall into two categories: events with a single dominant HXR burst and events with a train of multiple HXR bursts. Events with multiple HXR bursts, indicative of intermittent reconnection and/or particle acceleration, are found to correspond with faster CMEs.
