Development and application of a global magnetic field evolution model for the solar corona
(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 ...
The formation and eruption of magnetic flux ropes in solar and stellar coronae
(University of St Andrews, 2015-11-30) - Thesis
Flux ropes are magnetic structures commonly found in the solar corona. They are thought to play an important role in solar flares and coronal mass ejections. Understanding their formation and eruption is of paramount ...
Basic magnetic field configurations for solar filament channels and filaments
(University of St Andrews, 1997) - Thesis
The three-dimensional magnetic structure of solar filament channels and filaments is considered. A simple analytical potential model of a filament channel is setup with line sources representing the overlying arcades and ...
A non-linear force-free field model for the solar magnetic carpet
(University of St Andrews, 2012-06-22) - Thesis
The magnetic carpet is defined to be the small-scale photospheric magnetic field of the quiet Sun. Observations of the magnetic carpet show it to be highly dynamic, where the time taken for all flux within the magnetic ...
Magnetic flux transport simulations : applications to solar and stellar magnetic fields
(University of St Andrews, 2011-11) - Thesis
Magnetic fields play a key role in a wide variety of phenomena found on the Sun. One such phenomena is the Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) where a large amount of material is ejected from the Sun. CME’s may directly affect ...
