An approximate recipe of chromospheric radiative losses for solar flares
Abstract:Context. Radiative losses in the chromosphere are very important for the energy balance of the Sun. There have been efforts to make simple lookup tables for chromospheric radiative losses in the quiet Sun. During solar flares, the atmospheric conditions are quite different, and the currently available recipe is constructed from semi-empirical models. How these recipes work in flare conditions remains to be evaluated. Aims. We aim to construct an approximate recipe of chromospheric radiative losses for solar flares. Methods. We tabulate the optically thin radiative loss, escape probability, and ionization fraction using a grid of flare models from radiative hydrodynamic simulations as our dataset. Results. We provide new lookup tables to calculate chromospheric radiative losses for flares. Compared with previous recipes, our recipe provides a better approximation of the detailed radiative losses for flares.
