Contribution of phase-mixing of Alfv\'en waves to coronal heating in multi-harmonic loop oscillations

27 Apr 2018 Pagano P. Pascoe D. J. De Moortel I.

Kink oscillations of a coronal loop are observed and studied in detail because they provide a unique probe into the structure of coronal loops through MHD seismology and a potential test of coronal heating through the phase-mixing of Alfv\'en waves. In particular, recent observations show that standing oscillations of loops often involve also higher harmonics, beside the fundamental mode... (read more)
