Solar radio signatures suggestive of proton beams

Abstract

Electron beams propagating in the solar corona excite the ambient plasma to emit radio waves at the local plasma frequency and/or its harmonic. This general interpretation of type III radio bursts is well confirmed by in situ measurements. The rate at which peak flux drifts in frequency and time is a measure of the velocity of the exciter. Here we report a… (More)
