Dynamical Processes in the Solar Corona

X-ray Jets and X-ray Plasma Ejections from Impulsive Flares
  • Kazunari Shibata

Abstract

Yohkoh/SXT discovered X-ray jets ejected from microflares and X-ray plasma ejections (loop-like or blob-like ejections; the latter are often referred to as plasmoids) from impulsive compact loop flares. The fundamental properties of these newly discovered hot plasma ejections are reviewed. A unified scheme based on the magnetic reconnection hypothesis is presented to understand these mass ejections.
