Context. While moving magnetic features have been studied extensively at the photospheric level, the effect they have on the upper atmosphere
remains largely unknown, and it is this which we seek to address in this work.
Aims. In this work we aim to investigate the chromospheric and transition-region dynamics associated with a moving magnetic monopole by
using spectral time-series and images.
Methods. Cross correlation was applied to images taken by different instruments and at different times in order to spatially correlate brightenings
seen at transition region temperatures with moving magnetic features seen in magnetograms. We used wavelet analysis to examine and compare
the periodicities of time-series signals in different regions.
