Modeling of magnetically confined plasma in hot coronal loops
Monday, 14 December 2015
Poster Hall (Moscone South)
In this talk, we present results of three-dimensional MHD modeling for the Alfvén wave turbulence within loops with high temperatures ⩾ 5 MK. One of our findings is that for the Alfvén waves to create enough turbulence to heat the loops in the core of the active region, the footpoint velocity must be 5–6 km/s. We also present the results of the non-thermal line broadenings in these loops and draw a comparison between the observations and modeling.
