Simultaneous high spatial resolution observations of solar flares in X-rays and microwaves (review)

  • S. Enome


Results of simultaneous high-resolution microwave and X-ray two-dimensional imaging observations are briefly reviewed. It is shown that seven events published in the literature are not homogeneous but rather diverse with respect to spatial structure, mutual relations on position or shape. An outlook is presented for the next solar cycle to obtain a large data set for extensive study of energetic solar phenomena.
