SHINE: "Magnetic reconnection and flux redistribution: multi-scale and 3D dynamics" at http://shinecon.org/CurrentMeeting.php

June 23, 2014 to June 27, 2014
There is a session about reconnection at the 2014 SHINE meeting (Telluride, CO), for which I am one of the organizers. The dates of the meeting are June 23-27, 2014. This is the link to the meeting: http://shinecon.org/CurrentMeeting.phpThe title of the session is "Magnetic reconnection and flux redistribution: multi-scale and 3D dynamics"You can see a description of the topics that we are going to discuss here: …See More

Mikhail Sitnov: Magnetotail Reconnection, Buoyancy, and Flapping in 3D Simulations

Planetary magnetotails accumulate energy of the solar wind-magnetosphere interaction and then explosively release it. The most plausible mechanism of explosions is reconnection of magnetic field lines that are almost antiparallel in the tail. However, the possibility of the spontaneous reconnection onset in the collisionless magnetotail plasma has been in question in the kinetic theory for a long time. In addition, reconnection is accompanied by buoyancy motions, lifting flux tubes with reduced…See More

Yari Collado-Vega: Vortices created and evolving during fixed and dynamic solar wind conditions

We employ Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulations to examine the creation and evolution of plasma vortices within the Earth's magnetosphere for steady solar wind plasma conditions. Very few vortices form during intervals of such solar wind conditions. Those that do remain in fixed positions for long periods (often hours) and exhibit rotation axes that point primarily in the x or y direction, parallel (or antiparallel) to the local magnetospheric magnetic field direction. Occasionally, the…See More
