Ground-based observations of the variable solar radio emission ranging from few millimetres to decametres have been used here as a diagnostic tool to gain coherent phenomenological understanding of the great 2, 4 and 7 August, 1972 solar events in terms of dominant physical processes like generation and propagation of shock waves in the solar atmosphere, particle acceleration and trapping.The basic data used in this review have been collected by many workers throughout the world utilizing a… Expand

On the Little-Known Consequences of the 4 August 1972 Ultra-Fast Coronal Mass Ejecta: Facts, Commentary, and Call to Action
Today the extreme space weather events of early August 1972 are discussed as benchmarks for Sun-Earth transit times of solar ejecta (14.6 hr) and for solar energetic particle fluxes (10 MeV ion fluxExpand
Energetic heavy ions with nuclear charge Z ≧4 in the equatorial radiation belts of the Earth: Magnetic storms
Magnetic storms are known to perturb the earth's radiation belts in profound ways. In this paper we present direct in situ observations of trapped energetic heavy ions with nuclear charge Z ≧4 atExpand
Experimental determination of geomagnetically trapped energetic heavy ion fluxes
The observed spatial, directional and spectral characteristics of geomagnetically trapped heavy ions are reviewed. It is found that ions heavier than protons are significantly abundant in the earth'sExpand
Discovery of ions with nuclear charge Z ≧ 9 stably trapped in the earth's radiation belts☆
Abstract We report observations of MeV heavy ions made with Explorer 45 in the earth's radiation belts during the 7-month period June–December 1972 when four major magnetic storms occurred.Expand


Regular Pulses from the Sun and a Possible Clue to the Origin of Solar Cosmic Rays
A CURIOUS but rare feature of the metre–wave continuum (type IV) radiation received from certain large solar flares is the pulsating structure which modulates the intensity in a periodic orExpand
Theory of solar radio pulsation
We show that the observed modulation of some coronal microwave, X-ray and Type III emission into pulses of 10 sec intervals is a consequence of the stimulation of electron cyclotron waves propagatedExpand
Solar microwave bursts as indicators of the occurrence of solar proton emission
A study has been made of the relation of 19 GHz(λ = 1.58 cm) solar radio bursts to solar proton emission, with particular reference to the usefulness of relatively long duration bursts withExpand
Behavior of the ionospheric F region during the Great Solar Flare of August 7, 1972
The response of the ionospheric F region to the large solar flare that occurred near 1500 UT on August 7, 1972, has been monitored by means of Faraday rotation measurements made at 17 stations inExpand
Radio evidence of directive shock-wave propagation in the solar corona
Radioheliograph observations at 80 MHz are reported of a flare-associated event in which two type II bursts occur in four different sources. The projected centres of the sources lie along an arcExpand
Pulsating radio emissions from the solar corona
Three solar outbursts which show pulsating radio emissions at metric waves (239 MHz) are examined. The behaviour of the single frequency, high-time resolution records and the spectral diagrams seemExpand
Interplanetary shock waves and comet brightness fluctuations during June–August 1972
A series of anomalous events associated with solar activity occurred in interplanetary space in June and August 1972. These events include non-Io-associated decametric emission from Jupiter;Expand
Shock waves generated by the intense solar flare of 1972, August 7, 15:00 UT
The dynamic radio spectrum of the class 3B solar flare of 1972, August 7, 15: 00 UT, over the band 10 to 2000 MHz is examined. Type II and type IV bursts in the spectrum are interpreted in terms of aExpand
Radio Bursts from the Solar Corona

Interplanetary Scintillation of Small Diameter Radio Sources
Previous observations 4 of flares on EV Lacertae in yellow and blue light have ~hown that 1/(yellow)/J/(blue) = 0·23 at maximum light, and this has been used as tho correction factor. The estimatesExpand
