[74.08] Multiwavelength Flares on AD Leo

We report on a multiwavelength flare campaign conducted during March, 2000 on the dM3e flare star AD Leo. Participating observatories included HST, EUVE, McDonald, DAO, Stephanion, CrAO, and Jodrell Bank. We present a preliminary analysis of the optical and ultraviolet photometry and spectrosocpy obtained during several flares observed with multiple instruments. The CIV light curves and velocity evolution are consistent with models of chromospheric evaporation and condensation which are commonly applied to solar flares.
