  • Rapid dissipation in a current sheet driven by footpoints motions

    Fruit, G.; Craig, Ian J.D. (E D P Sciences, 2006)
    Context.Wave energy dissipation by viscous and resistive damping in magnetic coronal plasmas is addressed. A two and one half dimensional, line-tied magnetic channel is considered whose footpoints are disturbed by buffeting ...
  • Visco-resistive shear wave dissipation in magnetic X-points

    Fruit, G.; Craig, Ian J.D. (E D P Sciences, 2006)
    We consider the viscous and resistive dissipation of perpendicularly polarized shear waves propagating within a planar magnetic X-point. To highlight the role played by the two-dimensional geometry, the damping of travelling ...
