Radio Observations of Gyroresonance Emission from Coronal Magnetic Fields

  • S. M. White
  • M. R. Kundu


We review the basic characteristics of thermal gyroresonance (also known as cyclotron) emission from solar active regions, and show how radio observations combined with our understanding of the basic mechanism can reveal much of the magnetic and thermal structure of the corona over active regions.
