RHESSI Microflare Statistics View all project descriptions by submitter

Iain Hannah Submitted: 04-Feb-2008 13:15

The RHESSI Microflare Statistics study has investigated over 25,000 microflares observed between 2002 and 2007 (Christe et al. 2008 ApJ in press, Hannah et al. 2008 ApJ in press). The thermal component of each event has been imaged and the temperature and emission measure determined from spectral fitting. The characteristics of the non-thermal component has also been found from spectral fitting. We now have a wealth of information about these events and plan on using this data in a variety of ways. We plan on modelling the microflares to recreate the observed parameters and distributions, helping to investigate the physical processes involved and possible biases in the observations. In addition we are also investigating the multi-wavelength emission from these events, using complimentary data from other instruments.

Participants: I.G. Hannah, S. Christe, S. Krucker, H.S. Hudson, R.P. Lin
