We analyze flare-associated transverse oscillations in a quiescent solar prominence on 8-9 September, 2010. Both the flaring active region and the prominence were located near the West limb, with a favorable configuration and viewing angle. The fulldisk extreme ultraviolet (EUV) images of the Sun obtained with high spatial and temporal resolution by the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) aboard the Solar Dynamics Observatory, show flare-associated lateral oscillations of the prominence sheet. The STEREO-A spacecraft, 81.5◦ ahead of the Sun-Earth line, provides on-disk view of the flare-associated coronal disturbances. We derive the temporal profile of the lateral displacement of the prominence sheet by using the image cross-correlation technique. The displacement curve was de-trended and the residual oscillatory pattern was derived. We fit these oscillations with a damped cosine function with a variable period and find that the period is increasing. The initial oscillation period (P0 ) is ∼28.2 minutes and the damping time (τD ) ∼ 44 minutes. We confirm the presence of fast and slow EUV wave components. Using STEREO-A observations we derive a propagation speed of ∼250 km s-1 for the slow EUV wave by applying time-slice technique to the running difference images. We propose that the prominence oscillations are excited by the fast EUV wave while the increase in oscillation period of the prominence is an apparent effect, related to a phase change due to the slow EUV wave acting as a secondary trigger. We discuss implications of the dual trigger effect for coronal prominence seismology and scaling law studies of damping mechanisms.
