Abstract:

We have conducted a statistical study of the correlation between solar radio bursts and sudden cosmic noise absorption events. Our main purpose was to study the relative effectiveness of the different microwave frequencies in detecting the radio bursts that are associated with X-ray emission from the Sun. In the frequency range covered 606 to 8800 MHz, it was found that the higher the monitoring frequency, the better the correlation with X-ray emission. It was also found that for centimeter wavelengths the correlation improves as the radio bursts become more intense whereas for decimeter wavelengths this was not found to be true. Author
