The intensity of emission is plotted on the vertical axis; the horizonal axis denotes the elapse of time through the flare event. On the left, a short, sharp burst of activity was recorded. In contrast the emission profile of the flare on the right covered a longer period (about 10 minutes) and showed a more complex pattern of decay.
