Abstract: Recent dedicated HINODE polar region campaign revealed the presence of concentrated kilogauss patches of magnetic field in the polar regions of Sun which are also shown to be correlated with facular bright points at the photospheric level. In this work, we demonstrate that this spatial intermittency of the magnetic field persists even up to the chromospheric heights.Polar network bright points are the ones which are present in the polar regions of the Sun (above 70◦ latitudes). We use special HINODE campaigns devoted to observe polar regions of the Sun to study the polar network bright points during the phase of last extended solar minimum. We are able to find a considerable association between the polar network bright points and magnetic field concentrations which led us to conclude that these bright points can serve as a good proxy for polar magnetic fields where the direct and regular measurements of polar magnetic fields are not available (before 1970).
