Abstract:

For events originating on the Western hemisphere, the delay before onset of the solar flare protons is shown to be well correlated r about 0.80 with the rise time of the associated radio-burst at 2-3 GHz or the rise time of the h sub alpha flare. The peak flux time of the protons is shown to be very well correlated r about 0.90 with the delay before onset, and fairly well correlated r about 0.70 with the flare or radio rise time. These results allow a prediction of the proton event time characteristics from real time radio burst data. Author
