  • SSALMON - the Solar Simulations for the Atacama Large Millimeter Observatory Network 

    Wedemeyer, S.; Bastian, T.; Brajša, R.; Barta, M.; Hudson, H.; Fleishman, G.; Loukitcheva, M.; Fleck, B.; Kontar, E.; De Pontieu, B.; Tiwari, S.; Kato, Y.; Soler, R.; Yagoubov, P.; Black, J.H.; Antolin, P.; Gunár, S.; Labrosse, N.; Benz, A.O.; Nindos, A.; Steffen, M.; Scullion, E.; Doyle, J.G.; Zaqarashvili, T.; Hanslmeier, A.; Nakariakov, V.M.; Heinzel, P.; Ayres, T.; Karlicky, M. (2015) - Journal article
    The Solar Simulations for the Atacama Large Millimeter Observatory Network (SSALMON) was initiated in 2014 in connection with two ALMA development studies. The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) is a ...
  • Numerical simulations of footpoint driven coronal heating 

    O'Hara, Jennifer (University of St Andrews, 2016-06-24) - Thesis
    Magnetic field permeates the solar atmosphere and plays a crucial role in the dynamics, energetics and structures observed. In particular, magnetic flux tubes provide the structure for coronal loops that extend from the ...
  • A computational framework for particle and whole cell tracking applied to a real biological dataset 

    Yang, Feng Wei; Venkataraman, Chandrasekhar; Styles, Vanessa; Kuttenberger, Verena; Horn, Elias; von Guttenberg, Zeno; Madzvamuse, Anotida (2016-05-24) - Journal article
    Cell tracking is becoming increasingly important in cell biology as it provides a valuable tool for analysing experimental data and hence furthering our understanding of dynamic cellular phenomena. The advent of high-throughput, ...
  • Existence, stability and formation of baroclinic triples in quasi-geostrophic flows 

    Reinaud, Jean Noel; Carton, Xavier (2015-12) - Journal article
    Hetons are baroclinic vortices able to transport tracers or species, and which have been observed at sea. This paper studies the offset collision of two identical hetons, often resulting in the formation of a baroclinic ...
  • On the stability of continuously stratified quasi-geostrophic hetons 

    Reinaud, Jean Noel (2015-04-30) - Journal article
    In this paper we examine the stability of quasi-geostrophic hetons in a stably, continuously stratified fluid. To this purpose we first determinate numerically equilibrium states. Equilibrium hetons consist of two vortices ...
