  • Coupling of the solar wind, magnetosphere and ionosphere by MHD waves 

    Russell, Alexander J. B. (University of St Andrews, 2010-11-30) - Thesis
    The solar wind, magnetosphere and ionosphere are coupled by magnetohydrodynamic waves, and this gives rise to new and often unexpected behaviours that cannot be produced by a single, isolated part of the system. This ...
  • Propagation and damping of MHD waves in the solar atmosphere 

    Kiddie, Greg (University of St Andrews, 2014-06-27) - Thesis
    Quasi-periodic disturbances have been observed in the outer solar atmosphere for many years. Although first interpreted as upflows (Schrijver et al. (1999)), they have been widely regarded as slow magneto-acoustic waves, ...
  • Transverse, propagating velocity perturbations in solar coronal loops 

    De Moortel, Ineke; Pascoe, David James; Wright, Andrew Nicholas; Hood, Alan William (2016-01) - Journal item
    As waves and oscillations carry both energy and information, they have enormous potential as a plasma heating mechanism and, through seismology, to provide estimates of local plasma properties which are hard to obtain from ...
