Radio wave scattering in anisotropic density turbulence of the solar corona: simulations and implications for radio observations

Eduard Kontar, University of Glasgow

Solar radio emission is produced in turbulent plasma of the solar atmosphere. Therefore, all radio observations are strongly affected by radio wave propagation effects. The density turbulence as well as the large scale density play an important role in the radio emission wave propagation. The stochastic description of radiowave transport in asymmetric, anisotropic density turbulence is presented. The simulations predict the observable parameters of plasma radio emission allowing interpretation of solar radio burst.
