Study of Solar Radio Spikes and Their Relation to Energetic Solar Events
- 76 Downloads
We compiled observations of solar radio spikes (RSs) reported in the literature. The compilation spans a wide range in frequency from 0.01 MHz to 8.4 GHz. We also compiled available information of energetic solar events that may be related to RSs. Using this compilation, though the RS events are associated with other energetic solar events, we show that there is no clear preference to any particular type of solar event. We study the dependence of the duration, bandwidth, emitted flux, polarization and drift rate of the RSs with its observational frequency.
