Extreme-ultraviolet Late Phase Caused by Magnetic Reconnection over Quadrupolar Magnetic Configuration in a Solar Flare View all abstracts by submitter

A second emission enhancement in warm coronal extreme-ultraviolet (EUV) lines (about 2-7 MK) during some solar flares is known as the EUV late phase. Imaging observations confirm that the late phase emission originates from a set of longer or higher loops than the main flare loops. Nevertheless, some questions remain controversial: What is the relationship between these two loop systems? What is the heating source of late phase emission, a heating accompany the main phase heating or occuring quite later? In this paper, we present clear evidence for heating source in a late-phase solar flare: magnetic reconnection of overlying field in a quadrupolar magnetic configuration. The event is triggered by an erupted core structure that eventually leads to a coronal mass ejection (CME). Cusp feature and its shrinkage motion high in the late-phase emission region are the manifestation of the later phase reconnection following the main flare reconnection. Using the enthalpy-based thermal evolution of loops (EBTEL) model, we reasonably reproduce the late-phase emissions in some EUV lines. We suggest that a continuous additional heating is responsible for the appearance of the elongated EUV late phase.
