[83.04] Bright Points and Coronal Jets as Models for Eruptive Phenomena in the Solar Atmosphere

Z.A. Frank, G.L. Slater (Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Center)

Bright points in X-rays and EUV are an ever-present phenomena in the solar atmosphere and are often the origin of coronal jets. When bright points are examined at high resolution (~1 arcesec or less) they show structures remarkably similar in morphology to larger scale coronal structures. Furthermore, their dynamics and evolution also show similarities to larger structures. We examine bright points and coronal jets in X-rays and EUV using Yohkoh SXT, TRACE, and EIT imagery in order to determine the extent to which they can be viewed as miniature counterparts of active regions.
