Electric Granulation TPOD

Hundreds of TPODs have been published since the summer of 2004. In particular, we invite discussion of present and recent TPODs, perhaps with additional links to earlier TPOD pages. Suggestions for future pages will be welcome. Effective TPOD drafts will be MORE than welcome and could be your opportunity to become a more active part of the Thunderbolts team.

Electric Granulation
Posted on August 6, 2018 by B Talbott
Known as “granulation”, it is where dense anode tufting is seen. The Sun’s chromosphere can be likened to the region just above a gas discharge tube’s positive electric terminal, similar to what is seen in a neon lamp.

Close to the surface of the energizing anode, there is a brighter glow than what is produced by the electrically excited gas within the lamp. That brighter glow corresponds to the chromosphere, just above the Sun’s photosphere, which can be thought of as the anode surface. When electric charge density exceeds the containment ability of the anode surface, a secondary plasma forms. That is the aforementioned anode tufting. The characteristic pattern of granulation on the Sun forms because tufts are packed together so tightly


I do not follow the location of the Anode and/or the Anode Tufts.
The granulations are called the anode AND the tufts.
So are they both?
If the granulated photosphere is the "Tufts....packed together"
Where, and what is the anode ?

As I have posted elsewhere, use of a standard electric "circuit" to describe our solar system is problematic.

jacmac,
Not your fault. It's actually better not to link to the current day's TPOD. The TPOD's have a temporary link that is good for as long the particular TPOD is the latest, usually for one day. The next TPOD will have the same link and the previous TPOD will be archived with a new link. So if you link to the current day's TPOD on the next day that link will take the reader to the wrong TPOD.
