Schumann resonance frequency increase during solar X-ray bursts



[1] Variations of the first mode Schumann resonance frequency in the Kola Peninsula and of the first and second mode frequencies in Kamchatka during seven days of March–April 2001, when the intensive solar X-ray bursts occurred, are studied with 5 min averaging. All X-ray bursts were accompanied by ∼0.2 Hz increase in the first mode frequency, at least in one of the magnetic components. Duration of the increases coincided with that of the bursts. For the second mode the increase (in average by ∼0.3 Hz) was registered in most events, when the ELF noise level was not very high.
