[3.07] Multiscale Feature Identification in Solar Flares and CMEs

D. C. Myers, P. T. Gallagher, C. A. Young (L-3 Comm. EER Systems Inc.)

Multiscale methods offer a powerful approach to solar image processing and analysis. In this paper, wavelet-based methods are applied to a sequence of TRACE 195 Åpassband images to unambiguously identify faint features associated with the 2002 April 21 X-class flare and CME. Morphological properties, such as feature width, height, velocity and acceleration are then extracted, and compared to recent results from traditional image processing techniques.
