Launched in 2002, the Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (RHESSI) was a NASA Small Explorer Mission designed to explore the basic physics of particle acceleration and explosive energy release in solar flares by making pioneering imaging spectroscopy observations of the X-ray and gamma-ray emissions of these energetic events. Decommissioned in October 2018, RHESSI covered more than a complete solar cycle in its 16-year lifetime and tremendously advanced the understanding of high energy phenomena at the Sun.
This workshop is the 20th in a series of workshops to explore current topics in high-energy in solar flare physics. It will have a format similar to previous workshops, with a balance of plenary sessions, invited and contributed talks, and working groups focused on specific topics. However, due to COVID related restrictions the meeting will be 100% virtual. The workshop will feature results from ongoing analysis and interpretation of archival RHESSI data, and will also emphasize coordinated observations of high-energy solar eruptive events using instruments/facilities such as EOVSA, NuSTAR, PSP, Fermi, and MinXSS. It will also include a session dedicated to EOVSA and STIX tutorials.
