Abstract

Vortex flows have been extensively observed over a wide range of spatial and temporal scales in different spectral lines, and thus layers of the solar atmosphere, and have been widely found in numerical simulations. However, signatures of vortex flows have only recently been reported in the wings of the H-alpha but never so far in the H-alpha line centre.
