New study reveals higher temperature enhancements during acoustic shocks in the solar chromosphere

New Delhi, July 01, 2023: A new study has found that bright grains observed in the chromosphere of the Sun are due to upward propagating shocks in the solar plasma, and show higher temperature enhancements than previous estimates. The study can help improve understanding of the mechanism of heating of the chromosphere situated between the bright […]

Science behind jets of plasma occurring all over Sun’s chromosphere unravelled

New Delhi, March 14, 2022: Scientists have unravelled the science behind the jets of plasma – the fourth state of matter consisting of electrically charged particles that occur just about everywhere in the sun’s chromosphere, which is the atmospheric layer just above the Sun’s visible surface. These jets, or spicules, appear as thin grass-like plasma […]
