Imaging observations of radio bursts at meter-decameter wavelengths

  • Mukul R. Kundu


In this article, we review some of the recent results obtained with imaging observations of the Sun at meter-decameter wavelengths, using the Clark Lake multifrequency radioheliograph. We briefly discuss the use of imaging observations to study the large scale structure of the upper corona. We discuss non-flare associated type II/type IV bursts associated with a coronal streamer disruption event associated with a slow (⪝100 Km/s) CME. We discuss meter-decameter microbursts, which occur at coronal heights, often without any surface activity. Finally, we discuss a correlated type III burst whose emission originates almost simultaneously from two widely separated (⪞ 105 Km) locations.
