AbstractWe study the oscillatory behaviour of small-scale magnetic flux-tube concentrations and their immediate surroundings by analysing high spatial resolution time series of spectra of four Zeeman sensitive lines (Fe I 5247.1, Cr I 5247.6, Fe I 5250.2, Fe I 5250.7) taken simultaneously in left-hand and right-hand circularly polarized light with the Echelle spectrograph at the Vacuum Tower Telescope in Izaña, Tenerife. The velocity field inside the magnetic elements is dominated by the 5-min

In other parameters as for instance the Stokes V peak separation we cannot detect an oscillatory component. Neither the magnetic line ratio nor the thermal line ratio is affected by the 5-min oscillations, although the latter reveals remarkable spatiotemporal variations.
