In addition, it has to be considered that the Debye sphere is flattened under the effect of the medium stratification.
Reading this paper, it has to be kept in mind that finally we propose the Debye sphere flattening by the stratification as the origin of the observed phenomenon, where div [??] may mathematically depart from zero.
But as for the fluid velocity, it can be considered as constant over the volume integral in its main contributing region, which is on the order of the Debye sphere whose typical radius in the photosphere is 1-2 microns (see Table 1), so that it can be factorized as done in (40).
