Abstract : In this paper, we are primarily concerned with the solar neutron emission during the 1990 May 24 flare, utilizing the counting rate of the climax neutron monitor and the time profiles of hard X-rays and gamma-rays obtained with the GRANAT satellite (Pelaez et al., 1992: Talon et al., 1993: Terekhov et al., 1993). We compare the derived neutron injection function with macroscopic parameters of the flare region as obtained from the Halpha and microwave observations made at the Big Bear Solar Observatory and the Owens Valley Radio Observatory, respectively.
