Magnetic field influence on 5-min solar oscillations spectrum is investigated. Proper oscillations spectrum is calculated for the model of the shell with linear temperature profile in the bottom layer while the top layer is exemplified by homogeneous magnetic field and sharp temperature increase, reaching the coronal value at the height about [FORMULA]. It is shown, that taking into account of acoustic energy absorption at Alfven resonant levels in the chromosphere one can provide an explanation for existing discrepancies between the observed and theoretically calculated frequencies of the 5-min oscillations.

Key words: Sun: oscillations – chromosphere – MHD
