The Bastille Day 2000 Flare

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 341)


The famous ‘Bastille day 2000’ flare was well observed by several space- and ground-based observatories and stidied extensively by many researchers. The modern observations in multiple wavelengths demonstrate, in fact, that the Bastille day flare has the same behavior as many large solar flares. In this Chapter, the flare is studied from observational and topological points of view in terms of three-dimentional magnetic reconnection.
