  • Conditions for sustainment of magnetohydrodynamic turbulence driven by Alfvén waves

    Dmitruk, Pablo; Matthaeus, William H.; Milano, L. J.; Oughton, Sean (American Institute of Physics, 2001)
    In a number of space and astrophysical plasmas,turbulence is driven by the supply of wave energy. In the context of incompressible magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) there are basic physical reasons, associated with conservation ...
  • Coronal heating distribution due to low-frequency, wave-driven turbulence

    Dmitruk, Pablo; Matthaeus, William H.; Milano, L. J.; Oughton, Sean; Zank, Gary P.; Mullan, D. J. (University of Chicago Press, 2002)
    The heating of the lower solar corona is examined using numerical simulations and theoretical models of magnetohydrodynamic turbulence in open magnetic regions. A turbulent energy cascade to small length scales perpendicular ...
  • Coronal MHD transport theory and phenomenology

    Milano, L. J.; Matthaeus, William H.; Dmitruk, Pablo; Oughton, Sean (American Institute of Physics, 2003)
    In the presence of a weakly inhomogeneous background, magnetohydrodynamic fluctuations are transported, reflected and at small scales, dissipated. In contrast to orderings appropriate to outer solar wind conditions, here ...
  • MHD turbulence and heating of the open field-line solar corona

    Matthaeus, William H.; Mullan, D. J.; Dmitruk, Pablo; Milano, L. J.; Oughton, Sean (European Geoscience Union, 2003)
    This paper discusses the possibility that heating of the solar corona in open field-line regions emanating from coronal holes is due to a nonlinear cascade, driven by low-frequency or quasi-static magnetohydrodynamic ...
  • A reduced magnetohydrodynamic model of coronal heating in open magnetic regions driven by reflected low-frequency waves

    Oughton, Sean; Matthaeus, William H.; Dmitruk, Pablo; Milano, L. J.; Zank, Gary P.; Mullan, D. J. (University of Chicago Press, 2001)
    A reduced magnetohydrodynamic (RMHD) description is employed to examine a suggestion made by W. H. Matthaeus and colleagues in 1999 that coronal heating might be sustained by a cascade of low-frequency MHD turbulence. Here ...
