Scientists measure the energy of solar flare’s in the first few minutes, The strong collision of magnetic energy creates a series of powerful solar fires that cause turbulent cosmic meteorological conditions on Earth. This is the first fire captured by the newly opened EOVSA Owens Valley Solar Array (EOVSA) radio telescope.
The solar scientists who took these photos initially determined when and where the explosion releases the energy that heats the plasma floating to energy of 1 billion degrees. Using data collected in the microwave spectrum, they can quantitatively measure the strength of the magnetic field’s development as soon as the flame is ignited and trace its conversion to other forms of energy, kinetic, thermal, and super-thermal.
So far, changes in the corona magnetic field during flames or other large-scale eruptions have only been counted indirectly, for example by extrapolating the magnetic field measured in photosphere, the surface layer of the sun, which is observed in white light, Scientists measure the energy of solar flare’s in the first few minutes.
This extrapolation does not allow accurate measurements of dynamic local changes in the magnetic field at the location and as long as the rocks are short enough to characterize the release of fire energy.
We can determine the most critical location for the release of magnetic energy in the crown, the researchers said. This is the first image that captures the flame microphysics. This is a detailed process chain that runs on small spatial and temporal scales and allows energy conversion.
This basic process is the same as the most powerful astrophysical sources, including gamma ray bursts, and in laboratory experiments that are of interest to basic research and the generation of energy that is synthesized practically.
With 13 antennas working together, EOVSA captures images on hundreds of frequencies in the range of 1 to 18 GHz, including optical waves, ultraviolet, X-rays, and radio waves in one second.
This increased ability to study flare mechanisms opens up new opportunities for exploring the most powerful eruptions in our solar system, which are ignited by reconnecting magnetic field lines on the sun’s surface and driven by energy stored in the corona.
Microwave emission is the only mechanism that is sensitive to the center of the coronal magnetic field. Therefore, unique spectral observations of high-wave microwaves EOVSA are the key to detecting rapid changes in the magnetic field. This measurement is possible because high-energy electrons that move in the magnetic field of the coronary dominate the emission of magnetic sensitive radiation in the microwave range.
A little more than two years after the expanded array began to operate, microwave images from the sun were automatically made and available to the scientific community every day.
When solar activity increases during the 11-year solar cycle, they are used to make the first daily corona magnetona, a magnetic field map that is 1500 miles above the sun’s surface.
