[14.02] RHESSI Workshop Reports: Multiwavelength Correlative Studies of RHESSI events

L. Fletcher (University of Glasgow), RHESSI Workshop Series Working Group 4 Team

In this talk we will report on the projects and progress of RHESSI Working Group 4, 'Multi-Wavelength Correlative Studies'. The remit of this working group is to use diagnostics from space and ground-based instrumentation in tandem with RHESSI to further our understanding of the fast particles and plasmas produced during large and small flaring events, and to illuminate the magnetic environment in which these take place. Topics being studied include the Neupert effect, hot coronal sources and coronal mass motions, and flare footpoint evolution. The April 21st 2002 X1.5 flare is a focus for much of the group's activities. This event has excellent multiwavelength coverage and shows many interesting features such as coronal downflows, moving RHESSI coronal sources, and very compact hard X-ray footpoints.
