Despite the fundamental role of magnetic fields in solar and heliospheric physics, there exist only very limited measurements of the field above the base of the corona. What is needed are direct measurements of not only the strength and orientation of the magnetic field but also the signatures of wave motions in order to better understand coronal structure, solar activity, and the role of MHD waves in heating and accelerating the solar wind. Fortunately, the remote sensing instrumentation used to make magnetic field measurements is also well suited to measure the Doppler signature of waves in the solar structures. We present here a mission concept for the Waves And Magnetism In the Solar Atmosphere (WAMIS) experiment which is proposed for a NASA long-duration balloon flight.||Conference Name:||Polarimetry: From the Sun to Stars and Stellar Environments||Conference Place:||Costarica||Conference Date:||July 2014||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12386/24297||URL:||https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/proceedings-of-the-international-astronomical-union/article/waves-and-magnetism-in-the-solar-atmosphere-wamis/B01D23BAB50FBC37D55718F3CB561749||ISSN:||1743-9213||ISBN:||978-0521139380||DOI:||10.1017/S1743921315004639||Bibcode ADS:||2015IAUS..305..121S||Fulltext:||open|
