Abstract: We have been examining the role of heat conduction during the streams and other transitory event in the inner atmosphere of clusters of galaxies. Assuming the propagation of heat by thermal waves and hydrostatic equilibrium, we show that the conduction cooling timescale could be different from simple heat conduction. The implications for X-ray observations and interferometry are discussed.
