High-energy Solar Phenomena - A New Era of Spacecraft Measurements: Proceedings of the Workshop Held in Waterville Valley, New Hampshire, March 1993

This text details the major measurements taken by the Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory during the solar cycle of 1989-1991. Contributions also include measurements taken by GRANAT, Yohkoh, SMM and other spacecraft during the same period, and review flare measurements and the theory of high-energy processes in flares. Other topics include: gamma-ray observations and the role of protons in flares, long-duration events and extended acceleration, Yohkoh observations/high-energy electron phenomena, and neutron monitor and GLE events. Graduates and researchers in solar physics, astronomy and astrophysics should find this work a useful reference.
