Dynamic models of flux tubes in the interpretation of polarization measurementsRecent observations of Stokes parameter profiles indicate the presence of mass motions with large velocity gradients associated with small-scale magnetic elements. Dynamic models of flux tubes were used in order to interpret observations of unresolved elements. It is clear that the physical picture of the dynamic models will be quite different from the hydrostatic ones since there is a strong coupling between the magnetic and the velocity field. Polarization measurements have to be interpreted in terms of dynamic models. Two-D steady flow solutions in slender magnetic tubes have been worked out. It was found that the main properties of the intensity line profiles as well as the asymmetries of the V Stokes profiles can be explained best in terms of magnetic elements with moderate field strength.
