Cosmic Structure Formation and Dynamics: Magnetohydrodynamic Simulations of Coronal Heating

Abstract

By implementing a three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) code based on the CIP-MOCCT scheme, we carried out large scale MHD simulations of the solar atmosphere covering the region from the convection zone to the corona. We found that in regions with weak magnetic fields (B~100G), horizontal magnetic loops created in the upflow regions of the convection… (More)
