A possible origin of these footpoint activities is magnetic stress (or electric currents) imparted in the magnetic flux tubes by turbulent convection during their ascent to the surface.
London, July 3 ( ANI ): A Spanish instrument known as IMaX magnetograph has observed the sun for the formation and evolution of a magnetic flux tubes on its surface.
But in some places, areas of strong magnetic field called magnetic flux tubes poke up through this cold layer.
Using this theory, the researchers have built a computer model that successfully predicts where and when spicules will form, based on the location of the magnetic flux tubes and timing of the sound waves.
Researchers have long theorized about the form and evolution of these features, called magnetic flux tubes, but have been unable to directly observe them in detail until now, says Christopher U.
However, the flows could also be trapped in very long magnetic flux tubes, which confine the plasma and prevent it from becoming part of the solar wind.
Scientists believe these bright points to be signs of what's called magnetic flux tubes, which are the building blocks of the sun's magnetic field.
Team member Dan Kiselman says the penumbral filaments, several hundred kilometers wide, are probably magnetic flux tubes transporting solar gas.
In a flare hot coronal gases are "bottled" within the loops, creating giant magnetic flux tubes.
