The emissions from once ionized magnesium atoms can be used to describe the atmospheric conditions during a solar flare. We used an unsupervised clustering algorithm to identify the different Mg II k line profiles that occur during a flare. This analysis has been applied to multiple flares leading to interesting discoveries that indicate shared chromospheric physics as well as typical emissions for all flares.

We are showing some videos of our first results for the detections of flares based on the slit-jaw images (SJI) of IRIS. We created a detection tool using some discrete cosine transforms (DCT, complexity of O( Nlog(N) ) in order to do fast analysis on our big data and to see it in the frequency domain.
