A study of the temperature evolution in solar flares using differential emission measure (DEM) analysis techniques

Malte Bröse, Freie Universität Berlin

In this project we investigate the temperature evolution of a M-class limb flare based on data recorded by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). We use Differential Emisision Measure (DEM) analysis techniques to derive the spatial temperature distribution from sets of EUV images (AIA). During dynamic heating and cooling processes in solar flares, these temperature distributions change in time. One of the project's key objevctive is to test the used DEM codes by applying the analysis technique to this limb event and compare the results with other observational data, e.g. from the GOES satellite.
