Heating in the solar atmosphere
Several mechanisms have been proposed to explain the extremely high temperatures in the solar atmosphere. We have now reached the stage where observations are sufficiently high resolution to truly test theoretical predictions. This session will evaluate the present state of theoretical modelling of heating mechanisms and the plasma response to compare with current high resolution observations (e.g. SDO, IRIS, Hinode) and plan for future missions such as DKIST, Solar Orbiter and Solar-C.
