Solar Imaging Tool Enables Better Understanding of Sun’s Atmosphere

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
The ability to track a particular kind of solar wave as it sweeps upward from the sun's surface through the sun's atmosphere is widening astrophysics’ understanding of how solar material travels throughout the sun. Though scientists have long suspected that the waves they spot in the sun's photosphere are linked to those seen in the sun's chromosphere, novel imaging tools have now enabled scientists to actually watch the wave travel up through the various layers into the sun's atmosphere. Scientists analyzed sunspot images from a trio of observatories — including the...Read full article
