Abstract

We provide the rationale for the wide applicability of the LCT method for inferring the magnetic helicity of an active region, with an illustrative application made to NOAA 10365. We also report that the determined rate of helicity change is not much sensitive to the free parameters of the LCT method. The application of the method to active regions by several investigators has produced results suggesting that the magnetic helicity of a major active region with flux 1022 Mx may be usually of the order of 1043 Mx2 or less, being twisted at most 0.1 turns as a whole.
