Centimeter Wavelength Observations of Active Regions and Flares with a Few Arc Second Resolution

  • M. R. Kundu


In recent years large aperture synthesis instruments such as the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope (WSRT) and the Very Large Array (VLA) with resolution of a few arc seconds at cm wavelengths have been used for solar observations. These observations have provided valuable information on the structures of radio emissive regions in active regions, and flares on scales of a few arc seconds. As a result we have much improved understanding of the origin of radio emission in these regions, and consequently of the processes of electron acceleration in the flaring regions and of the build-up of energy in the preflare active regions.
