This research project uses data from the Jansky Very Large Array radio telescope in New Mexico to study particle acceleration and transport in solar flares and associated solar eruptions.

Partners: New Jersey Institute of Technology
Funding: Swiss National Science Foundation SNSF
Keywords: radio astronomy, solar flares, particle acceleration, space weather
In this project we use radio observations of solar eruptions observed with the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array, a big radio telescope in New Mexico, and combine them with X-ray observations and ultraviolet observations from solar observatories such as the space telescopes RHESSI and SDO to investigate how solar eruptions accelerate particles and how these particles are ejected away from the Sun.
