Caption:
Temperature perturbations in a magnetic flux sheet (moderate field strength) due to waves excited by a horizontal motion at the bottom boundary. The waves higher up are predominantly acoustic (slow magneto-acoustic) that propagate up and form shock. The thin black curves are field lines and the white curve represents the contour of β=1.
