  • Development and application of a global magnetic field evolution model for the solar corona 

    Yeates, Anthony Robinson (University of St Andrews, 2009-06-24) - Thesis
    Magnetic fields are fundamental to the structure and dynamics of the Sun’s corona. Observations show them to be locally complex, with highly sheared and twisted fields visible in solar filaments/prominences. The free magnetic ...
  • Investigations of current build up in topologically simple magnetic fields 

    Bocquet, Francois-Xavier (University of St Andrews, 2005-06) - Thesis
    The solar corona is a highly conductive plasma which is dominated by the coronal magnetic field. Observations show that important solar phenomena like flares or the heating of the corona are driven by magnetic energy, ...
  • The origin and dynamic interaction of solar magnetic fields 

    Wilmot-Smith, A.L. (University of St Andrews, 2008-06) - Thesis
    The dynamics of the solar corona are dominated by the magnetic field which creates its structure. The magnetic field in most of the corona is ‘frozen’ to the plasma very effectively. The exception is in small localised ...
