Abstract:

High energy solar gamma-rays and neutrons were observed by spacecraft experiments during the major solar flares on 24 May 1990 and 15 June 1991. Both these flares were also associated with relativistic solar protons measured by ground-based neutron monitors. The integrated analysis of intensity-time profiles of different radiations and particles during these events gives evidence for extended neutron and gamma-ray generation during these solar flares.
