Abstract : Using a combination of ground-based and satellite instrumentation, solar flares are being studied over a wide range of wavelengths from radio through optical to X-ray. The prupose of this report is to further delineate parameters about the association of 2-12 A soft X-ray bursts with short duration 15 GHz microwave bursts. In the time period between November 1968 and March 1970, 147 cases of coincident microwave and X-ray flares have been examined to determine the relationships of start times, time of maxima, flux, and energy.
