Abstract With modern imaging and spectral instruments observing in the visible,
EUV, X-ray and radio wavelengths, the detection of oscillations in the solar outer
atmosphere has become a routine event. These oscillations are considered to be the
signatures of a wave phenomenon and are generally interpreted in terms of magneto-
hydrodynamic (MHD) waves. With multi-wavelength observations from ground and
space-based instruments, it has been possible to detect waves in a number of different
wavelengths simultaneously and, consequently, to study their propagation properties.
Observed MHD waves propagating from the lower solar atmosphere into the higher
regions of the magnetized corona have the potential to provide an excellent insight
into the physical processes at work at the coupling point between these different
