AbstractUsing SOHO/EIT Fe XII λ195 Å observations the new type of oscillations in coronal loops was detected. The oscillation corresponds to wave propagated to outer area of atmosphere of active area. As opposed to most kind of oscillations associated with coronal loops the waves are observed at non-flare stage of active areas evolution. Velocities of the wave propagation were 8-20 km s−1 and had quasi-perpendicular direction with magnetic field. Such waves were detected in active areas located
