We report results from self-consistent non-LTE radiation hydrodynamics simulations of the propagation of acoustic waves through the solar chromosphere. It is found that enhancedchromospheric emission, which correspondsto an outwardly increasing semi-empirical temperature structure, can be produced by wave motions without any increase in the mean gas temperature. Thus, despite long held beliefs, the sun may not have a classical chromosphere in magnetic eld free internetwork regions. The dynamic… CONTINUE READING
