Electron Plasma Oscillations Associated With Type III Radio Bursts

Electron Plasma Oscillations Associated With Type III Radio Bursts

D A Gurnett et al. Science.

Abstract

Plasma wave electric field measurements with the solar orbiting Helios spacecraft have shown that intense (approximately 10 millivolts per meter) electron plasma oscillations occur in association with type III solar radio bursts. These observations confirm the basic mechanism, proposed in 1958, that type III radio emissions are produced by intense electron plasma oscillations excited in the solor corona by electrons ejected from a solar flare.
