Physical Parameters of a Flare Derived from Multi-line [2mm] 2D Spectroscopy

Ying Liu, Ming-De Ding


Time series of 2D spectra of Hα and λ8542 for a flare of 1999 December 22 are obtained and analyzed with a new fitting technique. The method we proposed can simultaneously yield the four parameters: the line source function, the optical thickness at line center, the line-of-sight velocity and the Doppler width. We present the spatial distributions of the physical parameters and their temporal evolutions determined from the 2D spectra. Our results are consistent with the general picture predicted by the flare dynamic models.
