    • On the nature of reconnection at a solar coronal null point above a separatrix dome 

      Pontin, D. I.; Priest, E. R.; Galsgaard, K. (2013-09-10) - Journal article
      Three-dimensional magnetic null points are ubiquitous in the solar corona and in any generic mixed-polarity magnetic field. We consider magnetic reconnection at an isolated coronal null point whose fan field lines form a ...
    • Solar flux emergence : a three-dimensional numerical study 

      Murray, Michelle J. (University of St Andrews, 2008-06) - Thesis
      Flux is continually emerging on the Sun, making its way from the solar interior up into the atmosphere. Emergence occurs on small-scales in the quiet Sun where magnetic fragments emerge, interact and cancel and on large-scales ...
    • Theoretical magnetic flux emergence 

      MacTaggart, David (University of St Andrews, 2011) - Thesis
      Magnetic flux emergence is the subject of how magnetic fields from the solar interior can rise and expand into the atmosphere to produce active regions. It is the link that joins dynamics in the convection zone with ...
