We analyzed Kepler short-cadence M dwarf observations. Spectra from the Astrophysical Research Consortium 3.5 m telescope identify magnetically active (Hα in emission) stars. The active stars are of mid-M spectral type, have numerous flares, and have well-defined rotational modulation due to starspots. The inactive stars are of early M type, exhibit less starspot signature, and have fewer flares. A Kepler to U-band energy scaling allows comparison of the Kepler flare frequency distributions… 

The Flaring Activity of M Dwarfs in the Kepler Field

Flare events are mainly due to magnetic reconnection and thus are indicative of stellar activity. The Kepler Space Observatory records numerous stellar activities with unprecedented high photometric

Stellar flares observed in long cadence data from the Kepler mission

We aim to perform a statistical study of stellar flares observed by Kepler. We want to study the flare amplitude, duration, energy, and occurrence rates, and how they are related to the spectral type

KEPLER FLARES. IV. A COMPREHENSIVE ANALYSIS OF THE ACTIVITY OF THE dM4e STAR GJ 1243

We present a comprehensive study of the active dM4e star GJ 1243. We use previous observations and ground-based echelle spectroscopy to determine that GJ 1243 is a member of the Argus association of

Flare Properties of A-type Stars in Kepler Data

We analyzed the long-cadence (LC) light curves of 5435 stars with effective temperatures of 7000–10,500 K in Data Release 25 of Kepler to extend the samples of A-type flare stars and study their

The MUSCLES Treasury Survey. V. FUV Flares on Active and Inactive M Dwarfs

M dwarf stars are known for their vigorous flaring. This flaring could impact the climate of orbiting planets, making it important to characterize M dwarf flares at the short wavelengths that drive

Short-duration Stellar Flares in GALEX Data

We report on a population of short-duration near-ultraviolet (NUV) flares in stars observed by the Kepler and Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) missions. We analyzed the NUV light curves of 34,276

KEPLER FLARES III: STELLAR ACTIVITY ON GJ 1245A AND B

We present the flare occurrence rates and starspot evolution for GJ 1245A and B, two active M5 stars, based on nine months of Kepler short cadence observations, and four years of nearly continuous

Flares in open clusters with K2

Context. Magnetic fields are a key component in the main sequence evolution of low mass stars. Flares, energetic eruptions on the surfaces of stars, are an unmistakable manifestation of magnetically

Stellar flares detected with the Next Generation Transit Survey

We present the results of a search for stellar flares in the first data release from the Next Generation Transit Survey (NGTS). We have found 610 flares from 339 stars, with spectral types between

The Flare Catalog and the Flare Activity in the Kepler Mission

We present a flare catalog of the Kepler mission using the long-cadence data of Data Release 25. This catalog comprises 3420 flare stars and 162,262 flare events. A comparison shows that the flare
