… plus WG 2 and WG 6
• The STEREO observations provide both spatial and temporal signatures that clearly identify the particles as hydrogen
• The injection times closely match the GOES light curve of the flare

06:45:40 to 06:48:00 UT. Best fitting model (solid black curve); low-energy brems. (solid yellow), high-energy brems. (solid orange), nuclear line and cont. (solid blue), pion-decay (solid purple), 2223 MeV (dotted purple), solar 511 keV (dashed purple), solar-scattered N-capture (solid light green), He line (dashed light blue).
2005 January 20 Time Histories of Different Flare Components. Inferred ion and electron spectra show variability.
First gamma-ray flare of Cycle 24. Fits to the Fermi/GBM/BGO (left) and RHESSI (right). RHESSI spectral response degraded due to radiation damage.
