magnetohydrodynamic wave

magnetohydrodynamic wave

[mag¦nēd·ō‚hī·drə·dī′nam·ik ′wāv]
(physics)
Wave motion in an electrically conducting fluid, such as plasma or liquid metal, in a strong magnetic field at a frequency much less than that of the ion cyclotron frequency. Also known as hydromagnetic wave.

[6] studied the time damping of linear nonadiabatic magnetohydrodynamic waves in an unbounded plasma with coronal properties and found that behavior of the damping changes significantly when going from very small to very large wavenumbers and becomes almost constant for very large wavenumbers.
