A new method for probing magnetic field strengths from striations in the interstellar medium
Recent studies of the diffuse parts of molecular clouds have revealed the presence of parallel, ordered low-density filaments termed striations. Flows along magnetic field lines, Kelvin–Helmholtz instabilities and hydromagnetic waves are amongst the various formation mechanisms proposed. Through a synergy of observational, numerical, and theoretical analysis, previous studies singled out the hydromagnetic waves model as the only one that can account for the observed properties of striations....[Show more]
