IRIS flare papers


This is work in progress but I intend to maintain a list of solar flare papers that make use of IRIS data. The IRIS team maintain a list of all flares observed by IRIS

UPDATE, 16-Jul-2021: this page is now up-to-date again.

List of IRIS papers with the word "flare" in the abstract.
