About the classification of Jupiter Decametric Radiation Modulations: Arcs, Riihimaa Modulations (modulation lanes), Solar Wind Modulations
Arcs have time scales of minutes. Io-A and Io-C events generally have negative frequency drifts with vertex at the end of the arc. Io-B and Io-D generally show positive frequency drift with vertex at the beginning of the arc.
Riihimaa Modulations, noted by Dr. Jorma Riihimaa:
have time scales of seconds and frequency drift generally in the +- 200 kHz/second:

Solar Wind Modulations are very common in L Jovian radiation, with time scales of seconds and bands with little frequency drift (unlike S Jovian radiation with time scales of milliseconds or less). These modulations are caused by scattering from fluctuations in the Solar Wind:
