Ellerman bombs per LTE

  • Submitted by: Rob Rutten, Lingezicht Astrophysics
  • Authors: Rob Rutten
  • Session: Tuesday morning posters.

Ellerman bombs (EB) are small shortlived brightenings of the extended Hα wings that result from photospheric reconnection in solar active regions with much bipolar flux emergence. I will review their properties and visibilities in diverse diagnostics, including IRIS spectrometry. I will then use the unorthodox assumption of LTE to explain many aspects of their extraordinary visibilities. I will also treat FAFs (small flaring arch filaments) which are EB siblings but of larger potential interest because they affect the higher atmosphere.
