Response of SDO/HMI observables to heating of the solar atmosphere by precipitating high-energy electrons View all abstracts by submitter

We perform an analysis of the line-of-sight (LOS) observables of the SDO/HMI for models of the solar atmosphere heated by precipitating high-energy electrons during solar flares. The radiative hydrodynamic (RADYN) flare models are obtained from the F-CHROMA database. The Stokes profiles for the Fe 6173 Å line observed by SDO/HMI are calculated using the radiative transfer code RH1.5D assuming statistical equilibrium for atomic level populations and imposing uniform background vertical magnetic field of various strength. The SDO/HMI observing sequence and LOS data processing pipeline algorithm are applied to derive the observables (continuum intensity, line depth, Doppler velocity, LOS magnetic field). Our results reveal that the strongest deviations of the observables from the actual spectroscopic line parameters are found for the model with a total energy deposited of Etotal=1.0x1012 erg cm-2, injected with power-law spectral index of δ=3 above a low-energy cutoff of Ec=25 keV. The magnitudes of the velocity and magnetic field deviations depend on the imposed magnetic field, and can reach 0.35 km s-1 for LOS velocities, 90 G for LOS magnetic field, and 3% for continuum enhancement for the 1000 G imposed LOS magnetic field setup. For Etotal≥3.0x1011 erg cm-2 models, the velocity and magnetic field deviations are most strongly correlated with the energy flux carried by ~50 keV electrons, and the continuum enhancement is correlated with the synthesized ~55-60 keV hard X-ray photon flux. The relatively low magnitudes of perturbations of the observables and absence of magnetic field sign reversals suggest that the considered radiative hydrodynamic beam heating models augmented with the uniform vertical magnetic field setups cannot explain strong transient changes found in the SDO/HMI observations.
