Abstract: Coronal loops are the magnetically closed structures that direct the flow of hot plasma in the solar atmosphere. The observational properties of loops, including their lifetime, evolution, and temperature indicate that there are different classes of loops and that the different classes have different heating magnitudes and timescales. On important unknown timescale is the frequency of heating in active region cores, specifically whether the heating is sporadic (low frequency) or quasi-steady (high frequency). In this paper, we discuss the recent results on this question presented at the Fifth Coronal Loops workshop held in Palma Mallorca, Spain in June 2011.
