Nonlinear Waves and Chaos in Space Plasmas Solar Wind Energetics(2.3)


Implications for coronal heating

 Coupling to Transition Region is the key

 Electrons are (should not be) not important in the energy budget for fast wind

 Fast wind require proton heating => high Tp

 => Correct description of proton heat flux is very important

 Still problems in producing uA>700 km/s
