Long-period acoustic waves generated in the solar convection zone can propagate radially outward through the overlying atmosphere and get resonantly absorbed in the magnetic arches of the low-lying chromospheric canopy. The resulting Poynting and acoustic flux that enters the magnetic canopy in the network regions is demonstrated to be adequate to account for the observed chromospheric emission.
