We may have made an important contribution but we certainly have not
solved the coronal heating problem. The heating is very likely
caused by a combination of processes, which work on different
spatial scales. Magnetic tornadoes may contribute in this respect.
The magnetic tornadoes are much smaller than the large-scale
tornadoes observed with SDO earlier this year. It is not known so far if
these phenomena are connected.
The research was carried out by an international team, which was
initiated and led by researchers from the
University of Oslo, Norway.
Three out of the four first authors are based at the University of Oslo.
