The generation of acoustic energy from stellar convection zonesThe heating of stellar chromospheres and coronae by the dissipation of acoustic waves is an important heating mechanism. It is only in the lower solar chromosphere that short period acoustic wave heating seems undisputed. The arguments leading to the rejection of the so called acoustic heating theory are derived from comparisons of calculated acoustic energy fluxes with observational or theoretical requirements.
