IN some recent experiments of great interest and importance, both Reber1 and Southworth2 have succeeded in detecting and measuring solar radiation in the short-wave end of the radio spectrum. The wave-length employed by Reber was 187 cm., while the three wave-lengths used by Southworth, although not precisely specified, were of the, order of 10 cm. and less. In both series of experiments it was found that the intensity of solar radiation approximately conformed to that emitted by a black body… Expand
Temperature Radiation from the Quiet Sun in the Radio Spectrum
THE radio-frequency emissivity of the sun considered as black body is proportional to per unit frequency increment, where T is the temperature of the iadiating region, and X is the wave-length of theExpand
Solar radio-frequency radiation
The paper attempts to survey research on solar radio-frequency radiation, or solar noise, to early 1948. After an introduction concerned with history and units for specification of intensity, theExpand
Conditions of Escape of Radio-frequency Energy from the Sun and the Stars
IN several communications in Nature1,2,3,4 and elsewhere, various British, Australian and New Zealand workers have described experiments carried out during the War which prove conclusively thatExpand

TLDR
A special type of aerial has been devised which enables the solar radiation to be recorded separately from the galactic radiation, and so enables continuous observation of the sun to be made with aerials of comparatively low directivity. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that it may be preferable to treat problems of solar and galactic radio noise by classical methods, particularly when the refractive index of the medium departs appreciably from unity. Expand
Circular Polarization of Solar Radio Noise
IN two recent communications to these columns1,2 we have reported the existence of powerful radio emissions in the 5-metre wave-length band from sunspot areas. Since such radio waves must travelExpand
Abnormal Solar Radiation on 72 Megacycles
THE suggestion that the sun emits energy at a rate in excess of the black-body value on radio wave-lengths during periods of sunspot activity has been made by Appleton1. Experimental evidence of thisExpand
Solar radiation at radio frequencies and its relation to sunspots
TLDR
Directional observations indicate that the radiation originates not uniformly over the sun’s disk but in restricted areas in the immediate vicinity of a sunspot group, so that another mechanism producing radiation must exist. Expand
Temperature Radiation from the Quiet Sun in the Radio Spectrum
The radio-frequency emissivity of the sun considered as a black body is proportional toTλ-2 per unit frequency increment, where T is the temperature of the radiating region, and λ is the wave-lengthExpand
On a new method for exploring the upper ionosphere
The extensiveness and intensity of the ionization in the region above the height of maximum ionization of the F2-layer of the ionosphere is not known. It is shown that measurements of the refractionExpand
