Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We present here temporal and 0.2-2 MeV spectral data from two gamma bursts observed on 12 June and 16 August 1976, by detectors on the Solrad 11A and 11B satellites. The 12 June burst showed evidence for structure on time scales down to approximately 10 ms throughout its lifetime, whereas the 16 August burst varied only with characteristic times longer than a few tenths of a second. A search for both slow and fast spectral variability gave negative results. Accurate absolute burst times are, however, not yet available, but since both bursts were also observed by at least one Vela satellite, positions are calculable and will be reported.
