Abstract
We present first results of three-dimensional numerical simulations ofthe non-magnetic solar chromosphere, computed with the radiationhydrodynamics code CO<SUP>5</SUP>BOLD. Acoustic waves which are excitedat the top of the convection zone propagate upwards into thechromosphere where the waves steepen into shocks. The interaction of thewaves leads to the formation of complex structures which evolve on shorttime scales. Consequently, the model chromosphere is highly dynamical,inhomogeneous, and thermally bifurcated.
