Overview of Solar Radio Physics and Interplanetary Disturbances

  • Chapter

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

Abstract

Solar radio emission has been observed from a few hundred GHz down to a few kHz and has revealed a large variety of phenomena. Thanks to this broad frequency window, solar phenomena can be probed from a fraction of a solar radius out to 1 AU and beyond. This chapter reviews some topics of current interest in which radio astronomy has significantly contributed to transform our knowledge of the physics of the corona and of the interplanetary medium. Special emphasis is placed on the results which have emerged from coordinated studies of radio observations and data obtained in other spectral ranges. The few results presented in this chapter illustrate how major advances can be expected in the future from the Frequency Agile Solar Radiotelescope (FASR) instrument which will provide radio imaging observations covering simultaneously a broad radio spectrum.
