Description

The solar atmosphere shows signs of almost continuous reconnection events happening, producing energy releases over a large range in energy. The reconnection events are fast, efficient but so far not explained in detail. We observe the effects of reconnection both in low and high plasma beta environments. Observational data on accelerated particles, radiation in a wide range of wavelengths are abundant, but so far we cannot get a handle on the details of the process and its characteristics. Explaining the details of the reconnection process in the solar atmosphere is the next big challenge for solar physics.
