First light NST data showed presense of small upflow jet-like
eventsprediminantly stemming from intergranular lanes. Recent NST data collected with adpative optic system further showed that these intergranular jets are often associated with fragmenting graneles, in particular with a well defined bright granular lanes. Steiner et al. 2010 found these lanes in MHD simulated and SUNRIZE observed data. Model results also show that the bright granular lanes are part of a plasma vortex tube, which is expected to have enhanced turbulent magnetic fields.
In order to better understand the nature of the intergranular jets and their magnetic environment we propose a joint observational campain between BBSO NST and Honode/SOT.
