Abstract: We analyze the temporal behaviour of Network Bright Points (NBPs) using a set of data acquired during coordinated observations between ground based observatories (mainly at the NSO/Sacramento Peak) and the SUMER and MDI instruments onboard SOHO. We find that, at any time, all NBPs present in the NaD_2 images are co-spatial within 1" with locations of enhanced magnetic field density, and that not all the NBPs identified in the low chromosphere can be identified at higher levels. We calculate the intensity power spectrum for each NBP in several low-chromospheric signatures, such as the red wing of Hα, NaD_2 and Hα line center. The power spectra show no power at the 5.5 mHz frequency, while they display an enhancement at frequencies below 2 mHz, corresponding to periods between 8 and 20 minutes.
