Numerical Simulation of Magnetic Flux Emerging Through a Model Solar Atmosphere: Density, Magnetic Field, and Mach Number

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.
