Abstract: A reliable analysis of the polarization signatures of the solar chromosphere requires studying its temporal variations, which is rarely done when modeling and interpreting scattering and Hanle signals. The present contribution sketches the scientific problem of solar polarization diagnosis from the point of view of the temporal dimension, remarking on some key aspects for solving it. Our time-dependent calculations point out the need of considering dynamics explicitly when modeling and observing scattering polarization, in order to achieve reliable diagnosis techniques as well as a deeper knowledge of the second solar spectrum.
