Introduction

There is evidence that Type II spicules are due to magnetic reconnection [1-4], oscillatory reconnection [5,6] or more recently it was shown in [7] that spicules occur when magnetic tension is amplified and transported upward.… continue to the full article

A little bit of background

Coronal rain is a common phenomenon occurring in active region coronal loops. As the name suggests, it shares many parallels with its terrestrial counterpart; it consists of cool plasma condensations falling from coronal heights towards the solar surface guided by magnetic field lines.… continue to the full article
