Wave heating in gravitationally stratified coronal loops in the presence of resistivity and viscosity

15 Jan 2019 Karampelas K. Van Doorsselaere T. Guo M.

In recent years, coronal loops have been the focus of studies related to the damping of different magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) surface waves and their connection with coronal seismology and wave heating. For a better understanding of wave heating, we need to take into account the effects of different dissipation coefficients such as resistivity and viscosity, the importance of the loop physical characteristics, and the ways gravity can factor into the evolution of these phenomena...
