Unneutralized Electric Currents In Flare Prediction

Solar flares are abrupt brightenings in the solar atmosphere. The released energy is emitted throughout the entire electromagnetic spectrum, from radio wavelengths to high energy X- and γ-rays. These spectacular events are often accompanied by expulsions of coronal plasma, called coronal mass ejections (CMEs), and by the acceleration of highly energetic particles. Although life on
