[12.05] Multiwavelength Observations of Flares on AD Leo

In March 2000, a campaign was conducted to observe flares on the dM3e flare star AD Leo over a large range of wavelengths, using both ground and space-based observatories. Eight sizable flares and numerous smaller ones were observed over the four day duration of the campaign. We compare and contrast the behavior of the optical and ultraviolet continuum and emission lines during the large flares. We also investigate line broadening, velocity evolution and evidence for the Neupert effect.
