A practical scheme for using Solar Radio Burst Data of U-shaped spectra to predict the slope as well as the magnitude of the associated proton spectra has been developed, based on empirical correlation studies. A prediction scheme for riometer absorption, using proton spectral parameters as the input has been developed. Theoretical studies relate the source electron distribution parameters to those of the radio spectra, based on the model that the U-shaped spectra originate from a single group of mildly relativistic electrons. These electron-radio results are in qualitative agreement with the empirical proton-radio correlations. Author
