proposal
We measured linear polarization and Doppler velocity of the kernels of a gradual flare (C5.8) occurred on 2002 October 14 in the H-alpha line. The polarization of which the degree exceeds 1 % was detected, and this fact implies that a proton beam bombarded the chromosphere, and produced impact polarization in the H-alpha line. The RHESSI observation shows that the hard X-ray spectrum of this flare has no power-law component. Therefore, the proton beam is possibly the principal heating agent in this flare, which produced hot plasma observed in soft X-rays. The EIT of SOHO also observed this flare, and it shows the development of the flare, from the very beginning of the flare to the post-flare-loop phase.
