Abstract: We summarize certain observations of coronal luminosity, network magnetic flux, spicules, and macrospicules. These observations together imply that in quiet regions that are not influenced by active regions the coronal heating comes from magnetic activity in the edges of the network flux, possibly from explosions of sheared core fields around granule-sized inclusions of oppositepolarity flux. This scenario can be tested by Solar-B.
