Figure 9: (a) Histogram of the vertical component ( ) and transverse component of the magnetic fields ( ) are plotted for the PLFs obtained an hour before the flare. (b) Same as the (a) plot, but for the data obtained about two hours after the flare. The thick line corresponds to the histogram of transverse field strength and the dash dotted line corresponds to the histogram of vertical magnetic field strength.
