220.127.116.11 Detect and characterise waves in closed and open structures (e.g. De Pontieu et al., 2007), looking for signatures of their dissipation in the transition region and low corona, with a corresponding evaluation of the energy released to heat the solar plasma.
Targets: AR (also closed loops in QS?), on-disk and also off-limb (for spicules).
Maybe divide this objective per target?
Operational requirements table:
YES / NO / Not required / MAYBE / GOOD TO HAVE / NUMBERS
|Duration of the observations||Several hours depending on the target|
High latitude for plumes (PHI)
Better at perihelion for METIS for polar plumes
|Solar cycle dependence||Good to have|
|Multiple orbits||Good to have|
|Far side observations||No|
|Earth observations||Good to have|
|Instruments||EUI, PHI, METIS for plumes|
