Summary of results for the 8 cases studied.

Case vLOS (t = 0) Peak vLOS |BLOS| (t = 0) Peak |BLOS| Duration Summary
(km s-1) (km s-1) (Gauss) (Gauss) (s)

a 1.0 5.2 210 650 220 Starts with the formation of a bright point in an intergranular lane. The bright point evolves into a bright elongated feature.

b 0.8 4.7 220 775 220 Appears to start with the formation of a single feature in an intergranular region which splits into two bright points.

c 0.3 3.0 525 1320 220 Downflow takes place at the edge of a larger flux concentration which resembles a flower feature in the Imin map. Bright point is formed at the location of the downflow.

d 1.4 4.1 210 1035 180 Starts with a formation of bright feature at a boundary of a large granule. The feature then elongates and transforms into a string feature. The bright point associated with the downflow is formed at the center of the string. The feature then appears to fragment and is pushed out of the field of view due to granular evolution.

e 0.9 4.0 280 1140 180 Starts with formation of a bright feature in an intergranular lane which soon elongates and coalesces with nearby bright features to form a single elongated bright feature.

f 1.4 5.1 280 1130 240 A bright point is formed associated with a downflow which takes place at the junction of two string features in an intergranular region. The merger continues leading to a single bright elongated feature which fragments resulting in a big roundish bright feature and a string.

g 1.9 4.1 320 915 320 A bright point is formed in an intergranular lane. The bright point elongates and eventually fragments and disperses.

h 1.1 4.0 85 480 320 A continuum bright point is formed in an intergranular lane. The brightening in the corresponding line minimum maps is modest in comparison to all other cases. The point then disappears possibly moving out of the field of view due to granular motions.

Notes. vLOS corresponds to the LOS velocity and BLOS to the LOS flux density obtained from inversions assuming 40% stray-light.
