Influence of the solar atmosphere on the p-mode eigenoscillations

An asymptotic theory of global adiabatic p-modes is developed, taking into account the influence of the solar atmosphere. It is shown that waves of the whole frequency range ν ≈ 2–10 mHz may reach the chromosphere-corona transition region (CCTR) by means of a tunneling through the atmospheric barriers. The primary acoustic cavity inside the Sun becomes… CONTINUE READING
