Abstract : Observations of 3.3-mm bursts show that in most cases these bursts have slower rise times and are longer lived than the impulsive centimeter bursts. There is a good temporal correlation between the 3.3-mm and soft x-ray bursts, indicating that these bursts have their origin in the same thermal source mechanism, although these emissions may not arise from the same electrons.
