MHD Wave Coupling From Photosphere To Corona
MHD waves have been a staple topic of UK solar physics research over the
past few decades. The main reason for this sustained interest is their almost
constant and ubiquitous presence throughout the solar atmosphere, having now
been observed in structures ranging from resolution-limited, small-scale spicules
to large-scale sunspots. This abundance of MHD waves suggests that they could
play a key role in providing non-thermal energy from the relatively cool solar
photosphere (~6000 K) to the hot corona. This session aims to highlight the breadth of research being undertaken into solar MHD waves from across the country.
