Abstract

The most impulsive flares show large amplitude intensity variations in times of order 10 s. An attempt is made to reproduce the properties of these events with a model in which the heating of a static chromosphere by a nonthermal electron beam is balanced by thermal radiation cooling. The computed results suggest that the assumed static equilibrium may be achieved in some parts of the flares, and indicate improvements necessary for more accurate models of this type of flare.
