Numerical Analysis Seminars: Solar Flux Emergence

Presented by David MacTaggart, University of Abertay

1 February 2013 14:00 in CM105

The highly dynamic solar atmosphere is a nursery for flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) - the most powerful eruptions in the solar system. The driver of these eruptions is magnetic flux emergence - the process of twisted bundles of magnetic field rising and expanding into the atmosphere. In this talk I shall discuss magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) models of flux emergence and their relationship to CME-type eruptions. I shall also discuss computational aspects related to modelling flux emergence and dynamic phenomena in the solar atmosphere.
