Abstract

We analyzed a 66min time series of spatially highly resolved white light images to study the dynamics of photospheric light bridges which we assumed to be a restoration of the quiet surface inside sunspots. Similar decaying mechanisms were found as for normal photospheric dynamics for granulation.
