150. Photospheric Oscillations in and around Active Region 11158, including the Polarity Inversion Line

Contributed by Aimee Norton. Posted on January 20, 2021

To search for signatures of Alfvénic waves in the solar photosphere, the authors analyze the oscillation amplitudes, phases and time-distance behavior between different observables in a sunspot umbra, its polarity inversion line, and surrounding area.

51. Magnetic Field Reconstruction Based on Sunspot Oscillations

Contributed by Johannes Löhner-Böttcher. Posted on April 25, 2016

We observed magnetoacoustic waves propagating along the magnetic field lines of a sunspot. Based on the wave periods and atmospheric characteristics, we reconstructed the magnetic field topology of the sunspot.
