  • Coronal heating by magnetohydrodynamic turbulence driven by reflected low-frequency waves

    Matthaeus, William H.; Zank, Gary P.; Oughton, Sean; Mullan, D. J.; Dmitruk, Pablo (IOP PUBLISHING LTD, 1999)
    A candidate mechanism for the heating of the solar corona in open field line regions is described. The interaction of Alfvén waves, generated in the photosphere or chromosphere, with their reflections and the subsequent ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • MHD‐driven kinetic dissipation in the solar wind and corona

    Leamon, R. J.; Matthaeus, William H.; Smith, Charles W.; Zank, Gary P.; Mullan, D. J.; Oughton, Sean (University of Chicago Press, 2000)
    Mechanisms for the deposition of heat in the lower coronal plasma are discussed, emphasizing recent attempts to reconcile the fluid and kinetic perspectives. Structures at magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) scales may drive a ...
  • 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 ...
