Modeling solar magnetoconvection and coronal structures

  • Neal E. Hurlburt (a1) and Marc L. Derosa (a1)

Abstract

We present results of an investigation into the coupling between solar-like magnetoconvection and coronal structures using self-consistent numerical simulations of compressible fluids. The model consists of a stratified MHD fluid spanning multiple scale heights, encompassing the transition of the plasma beta from high to low values. The lower portion of the domain, where the beta is high, is convectively unstable while the upper portion is stabilized by the presence of a strong magnetic field and energy losses. As a result, the dynamics associated with evolving magnetic features in the solar atmosphere can be modelled in a manner that is self-consistent with the convective motions that provide the driving. We present simulations of arcade-like reconnection in the presence of supergranular-scale flows.To search for other articles by the author(s) go to: http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abstract_service.html
