Numerical Simulation of Magnetic Flux Emerging Through a Model Solar Atmosphere: Density Gradient, Magnetic Field, and Mach Number
Released on December 12, 1996
This animation is one of a series depicting the results of a two-dimensional ideal magnetohydrodynamic simulation of magnetic flux emerging through a solar atmosphere. The simulation has a resolution of 300x500 cells and a length scale of 16 Mm x 6.8 Mm. The simulation depicts 1730 seconds in the evolution of the model.
A animation of the evolution of the density gradient, the magnetic field, and the mach number in the solar atmosphere model. Magnetic field contours are shown in magenta and mach number contours are shown in green.
