Evidence of Reconnection in Solar Flares

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 341)

Abstract

The physics of flares on the Sun now becomes ‘an étalon’ for contemporary astrophysics, in particular for gamma and X-ray astronomy. In contrast to flares on other stars and to many analogous phenomena in the Universe, solar flares are accessible to a broad variety of observational methods to see and investigate the magnetic reconnection process in high-temperature strongly-magnetized plasma of the corona as well as in low-temperature weakly-ionized plasma in the photosphere.
