Abstract : Disturbances propagating from flares, as observed by high time resolutions H alpha Lockheed filtergrams, are analyzed. A theoretical model is developed, assuming a magnetohydromagnetic pulse which is generated by a source located in the flare region, propagates from the source and is refracted in the solar corona. Ray tracing calculations, when fitted to the observations, yield reasonable source heights and magnetic fields. (Author)
