MSDP observations of the 16 May, 1981 two-ribbon flare are used to study the physical structure and the dynamical behaviour of cool flare loops. The loops have been detected in the Hα line just after the flare maximum and they appeared in absorption against the disk. Using the first-order differential cloud model (DCM1) technique, we derive empirically some basic plasma parameters at 15 points along one loop leg. The flow velocities and the true heights have been reconstructed with respect to a… CONTINUE READING
