Activities in the evolutionary phase of solar flares as candles to the pre-eruptive magnetic-field structures on the Sun
Solar flares are transient explosions on the Sun. Being the earliest observational signature of solar eruptions that drive space-weather, investigating multi-wavelength emission emanated during flares not only probes the plasma processes but the capability of space-weather prediction is also improved. My research focuses on probing the pre-eruptive processes associated with impending solar flares and filaments and identifying their role in triggering eruptions. Pre-eruptive processes, including low-intensity flares and related plasma dynamics, enable tracing magnetic-field structures without disrupting them. This vital virtue has been widely utilized in our recent investigations, as will be presented in the talk.
