Effect of Alpha Beams on Low-frequency Electromagnetic Waves Driven by Proton Beams

Electromagnetic waves (EMWs) below or near the proton gyrofrequency can be left-hand (LH) or right-hand (RH) polarized waves, which are believed to be fundamentally important in the energization of




We incorporate the cyclotron-resonant Fermi heating mechanism of Isenberg & Vasquez into an inhomogeneous, collisionless coronal hole model to investigate this kinetic process in the presence of the

Nonlinear fast magnetosonic waves in solar coronal holes

A coronal hole is modeled as a slab of cold plasma threaded by a vertical, uniform magnetic eld. A periodic driver acting at the coronal base is assumed to drive the velocity component normal to the

Signatures of Alfvén waves in the polar coronal holes as seen by EIS/Hinode

Context. We diagnose the properties of the plume and interplume regions in a polar coronal hole and the role of waves in the acceleration of the solar wind. Aims. We attempt to detect whether Alfven

The Solar Corona Above Polar Coronal Holes as Seen by SUMER on SOHO

In order to address two of the principal scientific objectives of the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), studies of the heating mechanisms of the solar corona and the acceleration processes

Dissipation of Slow Magnetosonic Waves in Coronal Plumes

Recently, slow magnetosonic waves were identified in polar plumes, at heights up to about 1.2 R☉ using the Extreme Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (EIT) observations of quasi-periodic EUV intensity

Coronal heating by MHD waves

Aims. We study the possible role of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves in the heating of solar corona and magnetic coronal loops. Methods. Taking into account viscosity and thermal conductivity, we

Ion Cyclotron Wave Dissipation in the Solar Corona: The Summed Effect of More than 2000 Ion Species

In this paper the dissipation of ion cyclotron resonant Alfvén waves in the extended solar corona is examined in detail. For the first time, the wave damping arising from more than 2000 low-abundance

Cyclotron resonance in coronal holes: 2. A two‐proton description

In a cold plasma, the ion-cyclotron mode does not extend above the proton cyclotron frequency. As a consequence, for waves propagating outward from the Sun, only protons that are moving slower than

Potential wells, the cyclotron resonance, and ion heating in coronal holes

We consider the motions of protons and O5+ ions in coronal holes. We first consider the effects of a potential well, which arises from the combination of gravity, the electrostatic electric field,

Cyclotron resonance in coronal holes: 1. Heating and acceleration of protons,

The resonant heating and acceleration of protons and selected heavy ions in coronal holes are investigated by calculating trajectories of individual test particles under the influence of gravity, the
