Chromospheric evaporation and phase mixing of Alfv\'en waves in coronal loops

26 Feb 2020 Van Damme H. J. De Moortel I. Pagano P. Johnston C. D.

Phase mixing of Alfv\'en waves has been studied extensively as a possible coronal heating mechanism but without the full thermodynamic consequences considered self-consistently. It has been argued that in some cases, the thermodynamic feedback of the heating could substantially affect the transverse density gradient and even inhibit the phase mixing process... (read more)
