wave heating meaning
Heating a material by energy ab-
sorbed from traveling electromagnetic waves.
- shock wave heating
- One problem with wave heating is delivery of the heat to the appropriate place.
- Energy transport and the propagation of waves plays an important role in the wave heating of plasmas.
- Another problem with wave heating has been the complete absence, until the late 1990s, of any direct evidence of waves propagating through the solar corona.
- Many coronal heating theories have been proposed, but two theories have remained as the most likely candidates : wave heating and magnetic reconnection ( or nanoflares ).
