Heat flux delivered by magnetic reconnection is calculated based on a model using magnetic field observations, and the calculation is then compared with AIA EUV observations.

The early phase of a flux emergence was observed by IRIS, and spectra of the accompanying UV bursts are analyzed. Many bursts appear to be associated with the magnetic flux cancellation, and almost all of them are located in regions with large squashing factors.

Statistical studies find that white-light flares from the Sun and from solar-type stars have similar energy-duration relations, but the stellar flares have shorter duration. Cooling effect and stronger magnetic field in the stellar corona are proposed to explain this difference.
