[1.07] The Nature of the Waves in the Solar Chromosphere

W. Kalkofen (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics)

Several models have been proposed for waves and oscillations in the solar chromosphere. In the magnetic network on the boundary of supergranulation cells the waves are assumed to be internal gravity waves or trapped magneto-gravity waves with energy flowing downward in magnetic flux tubes, or transverse and longitudinal magneto-acoustic waves traveling upward in flux tubes; and in the interior of supergranulation cells they are assumed to be standing acoustic waves in a chromospheric cavity or upward-propagating acoustic waves. The paper examines these models critically.
