Article metrics


SEVERAL authors have paid attention to the association of radio outbursts with solar flares, for example, Dodson1 and Loughhead, Roberts and McCabe2. Outstanding flare events are very commonly accompanied by a radio event at decimeter and/or metre wave-lengths; but only a minor fraction of the less-important flares produce a distinctive radio event.
