Generating a radioheliograph image from SDO/AIA data with the machine learning method

Pei-Jin Zhang, Chuan-Bing Wang, Guan-Shan Pu


Abstract Radioheliograph images are essential for the study of solar short term activities and long term variations, while the continuity and granularity of radioheliograph data are not so ideal, due to the short visible time of the Sun and the complex electron-magnetic environment near the ground-based radio telescope. In this work, we develop a multi-channel input single-channel output neural network, which can generate radioheliograph image in microwave band from the Extreme Ultra-violet (EUV) observation of the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) on board the Solar Dynamic Observatory (SDO). The neural network is trained with nearly 8 years of data of Nobeyama Radioheliograph (NoRH) at 17 GHz and SDO/AIA from January 2011 to September 2018. The generated radioheliograph image is in good consistency with the well-calibrated NoRH observation. SDO/AIA provides solar atmosphere images in multiple EUV wavelengths every 12 seconds from space, so the present model can fill the vacancy of limited observation time of microwave radioheliograph, and support further study of the relationship between the microwave and EUV emission.
