Abstract

The research program underlying the IRIS experiment (Russian acronym for Investigation of Solar X-Ray Emission) encompasses investigation of the characteristics of X-ray emission from solar flares and of their precursors in the 2–200-keV range, which would form a basis for development of physical models describing the process of buildup and explosive release of energy in a solar flare, as well as accumulation of experimental data to serve in devising techniques for forecasting the solar flare activity
