On The Magnetic Energy Avalanche in the Solar Atmosphere
We discuss a mechanism of energy production associated with the acoustic and MHD shocks produced by colliding and reconnecting flux tubes and present the observational results showing a connection between the dynamic changes in the photosphere and the high velocity and heating events in the transition region. We suggest that these processes may provide a constant energy supply for the origin of the fast wind and help to advance studies of coronal dynamics.
