Abstract We apply a novel pre-flare tracking of sunspot groups towards improving the estimation of flare onset time by focusing on the evolution of the 3D magnetic field construction of AR 11429. The 3D magnetic structure is based on potential field extrapolation encompassing a vertical range from the photosphere through the chromosphere and transition region into the low corona. The basis of our proxy measure of activity prediction is the so-called weighted horizontal gradient of magnetic…

Evolution of Solar Active Regions Before Large Flares: Overview of the Events of 2010–2017

The paper presents a study of the evolution of the photospheric magnetic field of active regions (ARs) of the Sun in which flares (larger than the M9 class in the Geostationary Operational

Three-dimensional magnetic field topology in a region of solar coronal heating

TLDR
The observations reveal two magnetic features that characterize young active regions on the Sun: a set of rising magnetic loops and a tangential discontinuity of the magnetic field direction, the latter being the observational signature of an electric current sheet, providing strong support for coronal heating models based on the dissipation of magnetic energy at current sheets.

Solar Force-free Magnetic Fields

The structure and dynamics of the solar corona is dominated by the magnetic field. In most areas in the corona magnetic forces are so dominant that all non-magnetic forces like plasma pressure

ON FLARE PREDICTABILITY BASED ON SUNSPOT GROUP EVOLUTION

The forecast method introduced by Korsós et al. is generalized from the horizontal magnetic gradient (GM), defined between two opposite polarity spots, to all spots within an appropriately defined
