Abstract
A study has been made of type III solar radio noise bursts that appear in the recordings of the swept-frequency receivers in the Alouettes Iand II satellites. These bursts extend down in frequency to substantially less than 1 MHz and, in general, have characteristics that are quite similar to those observed at decametric wavelengths except that their duration is increased at the lower frequencies. The electron temperatures in the corona where the bursts originate have been deduced from their decay rates, and these are shown to decrease much more rapidly with distance from the Sun than expected for the solar wind.
