Recent observations imply magnetic activity in atmospheres of early-type stars. We explore the possibility that stressed surface magnetic fields can be driven by inertial oscillations, such as r-modes which are vorticity waves. We show that vorticIAL MOTIOns are able to supply helicity to drive magnetic activity in stellar atmospheres.
