Anisotropic propagation of flare-induced shocks
- 11 Downloads
It is demonstrated that the fastest propagation direction of a flare-induced shock deviates eastwards by about 4° at 1 AU relative to the flare normal if the shock introduced at 0.1 AU propagates along the local magnetic field, whereas it deviates westwards by about 1° if the introduced shock propagates in the radial direction instead.
