Abstract:

Solar radio phenomena designated as post-burst decreases, absorptions, and negative-burst events are extremely rare and seem to be the only evidence of temporary decreases in the suns radio emission. The presence of optically identified material in the flareburst region is merely an association and not the cause of the observed radio decreases as has been suggested by earlier investigators. A theoretical model for the decreases is presented which invokes plasma turbulence effects of an electron beam in the radio-emissive region with absorption effects taking place in accordance with Kirchoffs law.
