Radio Observations of Coronal Mass Ejections

  • Chapter

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL,volume 314)

Abstract

In this chapter we review the status of CME observations in radio wavelengths with an emphasis on imaging. It is an area of renewed interest since 1996 due to the upgrade of the Nançay Radioheliograph in conjunction with the continuous coverage of the solar corona from the EIT and LASCO instruments aboard SOHO. Also covered are analyses of Nobeyama Radioheliograph data and spectral data from a plethora of spectrographs around the world. We will point out the shortcomings of the current instrumentation and the ways that FASR could contribute. A summary of the current understanding of the physical processes that are involved in the radio emission from CMEs is be given.
