Abstract

Quasars have been monitored with the Metsähovi Radio Telescope since 1980 at 22 GHz and 37 GHz. During these years we have recorded numerous outbursts in our sample. Some of the outbursts are simple in nature, while others also seem to have fine structure. Can the outbursts be modelled in a simple way?
