These stars are almost evenly split between stars showing hybrid-chromospheric and coronal outer atmospheric structures. EXOSAT observations have been obtained for three hybrid stars, of which only α TrA, the nearest, is detected.

The temperature of the emitting plasma is likely to be ∼10 by: 5. One of the great problems of astrophysics is the unanswered question about the origin and mechanism of chromospheric and coronal heating.

Just how these outer stellar envelopes are heated is of fundamental importance, since all stars have hot chromospheric and coronal shells where the temperature rises to millions of degrees, comparable to the temperatures in the stars' cores.

From the clear statistical relationship between the photospheric and coronal α values they inferred that the observed coronal twists, and their attendant currents, are of sub-photospheric origin.

We have obtained H alpha spectroscopy of 91 probable cluster members, including 23 that lie within three fields for which we have deep ROSAT X-ray observations.

20 of the 23 stars are detected in X-rays; the non-detections are probably not Hyades members. Recent observations at high spatial resolution have shown that magnetic flux cancellation occurs on the solar surface much more frequently than previously thought, and so this led Priest et al. () to propose magnetic reconnection driven by photospheric flux cancellation as a mechanism for chromospheric and coronal by: 7.; Wargelin et al.

Solar activity is associated with the appearance, temporal evolution and spatial modifications of the magnetic field at the solar surface and with its interactions with plasma mass flows.

Inferences of the coronal magnetic field can be obtained by extrapolating measurements of the photospheric magnetic field vector (e.g., observed by Hinode/SOT, SOLIS, or the up-coming SDO/HMI instruments) into the corona.

We survey the subject of Coronal. The solar magnetic field controls the dynamics and topology of all coronal phenomena. Heated plasma flows along magnetic field lines and energetic particles can only propagate along magnetic field lines.

Coronal loops are nothing other than conduits filled with heated plasma, shaped by the geometry of the coronal magnetic field, where cross-field diffusion is strongly inhibited.

The chromosphere (literally, "sphere of color") is the second of the three main layers in the Sun's atmosphere and is roughly 3, to 5, kilometers deep.

The chromosphere's rosy red color is only apparent during eclipses. The chromosphere sits just above the photosphere and below the solar transition region.

It is now widely recognized that the chromosphere and corona have a common origin in the mechanical energy flux generated in the hydrogen convection zone lying beneath the photosphere.

Abstract: We explore the biological damage initiated in the environments of F, G, K, and M-type main-sequence stars due to photospheric, chromospheric and flare radiation. The amount of chromospheric radiation is, in a statistical sense, directly coupled to the stellar age as well as the presence of significant stellar magnetic fields and dynamo activity.

The rise and decay rates of episodes of major activity progress from those for the hot coronal EUV lines and the ‐cm flux to slower values for the chromospheric H Lyman alpha line, 10,‐Å line, and photospheric ‐Å UV by: A Coronal Mass Ejection (CME; see Figure 1) is “ an observable change in coronal structure that 1) occurs on a time scale of a few minutes and several hours and 2) involves the appearance and outward motion of a new, discrete, bright, white-light feature in the coronagraph field of view” (Hundhausen et al., ; Schwenn, ).

With a File Size: 1MB. Due to the heightened magnetic activity in these coronal loop regions, coronal loops can often be the precursor to solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs). The Solar plasma that feed these structures is heated from under 6 K to well over 10 6 K from the.

In this review, our present day understanding of the Sun's global photospheric and coronal magnetic fields is discussed from both observational and theoretical viewpoints. Firstly, the large-scale properties of photospheric magnetic fields are described, along with recent advances in photospheric magnetic flux transport models.

Following this, the wide variety of theoretical models used to. The energy of solar flares comes from the magnetic field in the solar atmosphere [ 1 ]. Major flares usually originate from solar active regions (ARs).

In solar ARs, strong and concentrated bipolar magnetic field exists and manifests as dark sunspots in photosphere [ 2, 5 ].Author: Han He. Numerical 3-D Simulations of the Collapse of Photospheric Flux Tubes.- Chromospheric and Coronal Indicators of Stellar Magnetic Structure.- II.

A corona (Latin, 'crown') is an aura of plasma that surrounds the sun and other celestial bodies. The Sun's corona extends millions of kilometres into space and is most easily seen during a total solar eclipse, but it is also observable with a coronagraph.

The word "corona" is a Latin word meaning "crown", from the Ancient Greek κορώνη (korōnè, “garland, wreath”).

Major activities, such as flares and CMEs, are sometimes triggered by field emergence in an active region.Photospheric magnetic field not only plays important roles in building up free energy and triggering solar eruptions, but also has been observed to change.
