Learning to Diagnose Coronal Heating Signatures in Transition Region Spectral Lines

In the work reported here we have investigated signatures of nanoflare-based coronal heating in transition region radiative emission. The transition region is brighter, but very strongly coupled to the corona, and responds quickly to changing coronal conditions. Direct signatures of coronal nanoflares are expected to be extremely difficult to detect and perhaps only through such indirect observations may we find sufficient evidence to pin-down the coronal heating mechanism.

A FURST look at the VUV Sun as a Star

Thanks to the Hubble Space Telescope, we know the input of radiation from Alpha Cen A to our solar system far better than that of our own Sun.  The Full-Sun Ultraviolet Rocket Spectrometer (FURST) will obtain the first moderate resolution (R > 104), radiometrically calibrated VUV spectrum of the Sun-as-a-star. I will describe the instrument design, scientific prospects, and broader impacts of the mission.

High-resolution observations of the chromospheric waves

The solar chromosphere serves as a bridging layer between the photosphere and the corona. This dynamic layer is filled with a plethora of events that vary in small time and space scales. With the advent of high-resolution ground-based observations we are not only able to unveil new features but also understand the physical properties.
