Evolutional Features of Solar Microwave Type IV Bursts

  • K. Kai (a1)


Large outbursts from the Sun which are widely extended over centimetre and decimetre ranges and show smooth time variations in intensity have been called microwave type IV bursts (μ-IV). Those bursts generally consist of more than two successive components, the spectra of which move progressively towards the lower frequencies. Furthermore there is a tendency for the decay times, which are defined as the times occupied by the decreasing parts of the bursts, to become successively longer. It seems worth while to make a quantitative study of the time variation of the decay times and flux densities of μ-IV burst spectra and to infer how the physical conditions in the source change with time.
