- Within the last few years the rapid accumulation of gamma ray burst spectral data, especially those of KONUS and solar maximum mission, has made the confrontation between theories of the gamma ray emission mechanisms and observations much more urgent and challenging. At present the most viable mode seems to be some combination of inverse Comptonization and synchrotron emission. Here, an attempt is made to limit the acceptable parameter space of the emission region by taking into account the maximum set of observational constraints. These are then applied to two specific scenarios: surface emission versus magnetospheric emission. Some observable predictions based on these scenarios are considered.
