Influence of a plasma swirl motion on fine magnetic concentrations in the solar photosphere

Santiago Vargas Dominguez, Judith Palacios, Laura Balmaceda, Iballa Cabello, Vicente Dominguez


High-resolution solar observations from ground-based (SST) and space-borne (Hinode) telescopes acquired data with different filters, obtaining images of quiet Sun region populated with small-scale magnetic elements. The region is also characterized by the presence of photospheric vortex-like convective plasma structures.  This work presents the results of diffferent analysis applied over  time series of images to follow the evolution and dynamics of the magnetic features aiming to establish the influence of the plasma vortices on their motions.
