Short summary
Solar jets driven by heat or pressure pulses at their footpoints in the photosphere transfer energy and mass in to the corona. These jets energize the coronal part of the atmosphere with collimated plasma, similar to the fluid filled in a pipe. Understanding the physical drivers of such jets is of great significance to study the plasma in confined magnetic fields. The modelled jets in our paper allow for the study of the evolution of chromospheric plasma and support many existing observations.
