Abstract

The soft X-ray telescope (SXT) aboard the Yohkoh satellite has revealed many X-ray jet-like features, i.e. transitory X-ray enhancements with apparent collimated motions (Shibata et al., 1992). Many of X-ray jets are associated with flares in X-ray bright points, emerging flux regions, or active regions (Shibata et al., 1992, Shimojo et al., 1995).
