The oblique interaction of the solar chromospheric rotational or Alfven discontinuity with the transition region, described as a contact discontinuity, is studied. The appearance of the refracted magnetohydrodynamic shock wave going through the solar corona is shown. This wave makes the dissipation of the magnetic field energy inside the coronal plasma possible and may cause explosive events.

Keywords: Dissipation of energy; Magnetohydrodynamic rotational discontinuity; Solar transition region
