Author: Gerry Doyle (Armagh); Abhishek Srivastava, Sudheer Mishra, Bhola Dwivedi & Dipankar Banerjee (India), Petr Jelı́nek & Pradeep Kayshap (Czech Republic); Tanmoy Samanta & Hui Tian (China); Vaibhav Pant (Belgium)

Introduction

Magnetic reconnection is a physical process that may yield various phenomena in astrophysical and laboratory plasma, e.g., energetic flares, geomagnetic substorms, tokamak disruptions, controlled fusion experiments, etc [1,2].… continue to the full article

102. Do p-modes power the corona of cool stars?

Author: Richard Morton Northumbria University.

<< previous nuggetnext nugget >>

Introduction

Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves are thought to play some role in the heating of cool, solar-like stars’ atmospheres, and acceleration of their winds. The role of acoustic (or longitudinal MHD) modes in energising stellar coronae has long been discounted, both from theoretical and observational considerations.… continue to the full article

Introduction

The structure and dynamics of the most energetic events in the Sun’s outer atmosphere such as flares, eruptions, coronal loops and coronal mass ejections are controlled by the magnetic field.… continue to the full article
