The Bright Points in the Ca II K-Line and Their Relation to the Inner Network Magnetic Structures

  • K. R. Sivaraman


We present observational evidence to show that the K2V points bear a one to one correspondence with the inner network magnetic elements when the quiet sun is viewed under good spatial resolution. This would have implications on the theories of chromospheric heating over quiet regions on the sun.
