A Model for Solar Coronal Mass Ejections
We propose a new model for the initiation of a solar coronal mass ejection (CME). The model agrees with two properties of CMEs and eruptive flares that have proved to be very difficult to explain
A MODEL FOR SOLAR POLAR JETS
We propose a model for the jetting activity that is commonly observed in the Sun's corona, especially in the open-field regions of polar coronal holes. Magnetic reconnection is the process driving
Cooling of solar flares plasmas. 1: Theoretical considerations
Theoretical models of the cooling of flare plasma are reexamined. By assuming that the cooling occurs in two separate phase where conduction and radiation, respectively, dominate, a simple analytic
Solar cycle–dependent helicity transport by magnetic clouds
[1] Magnetic clouds observed with the Wind and ACE spacecraft are fit with the static, linear force-free cylinder model to obtain estimates of the chirality, fluxes, and magnetic helicity of each
Internal structure of magnetic clouds: Plasma and composition
[1] A comprehensive analysis of magnetic clouds observed by the Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) spacecraft from February 1998 to July 2001 is presented. The magnetic field data from the MAG
Topological Evolution of a Fast Magnetic Breakout CME in Three Dimensions
We present the extension of the magnetic breakout model for CME initiation to a fully three-dimensional, spherical geometry. Given the increased complexity of the dynamic magnetic field interactions
The Dynamic Formation of Prominence Condensations
We present simulations of a model for the formation of a prominence condensation in a coronal loop. The key idea behind the model is that the spatial localization of loop heating near the
The magnetic topology of solar eruptions
We present an explanation for the well-known observation that complexity of the solar magnetic field is a necessary ingredient for strong activity such as large eruptive flares. Our model starts with
A MODEL FOR THE SOURCES OF THE SLOW SOLAR WIND
Models for the origin of the slow solar wind must account for two seemingly contradictory observations: the slow wind has the composition of the closed-field corona, implying that it originates from
The Mechanisms for the Onset and Explosive Eruption of Coronal Mass Ejections and Eruptive Flares
We have investigated the onset and acceleration of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and eruptive flares. To isolate the eruption physics, our study uses the breakout model, which is insensitive to the
