  • Properties of the prominence magnetic field and plasma distributions as obtained from 3D whole-prominence fine structure modeling 

    Gunar, Stanislav; Mackay, Duncan Hendry (2016-08) - Journal article
    Aims. We analyze distributions of the magnetic field strength and prominence plasma (temperature, pressure, plasma beta, and mass) using the 3D whole-prominence fine structure model. Methods. The model combines a 3D magnetic ...
  • Motives and tensions in the release of open educational resources : the UKOER program 

    Falconer, Isobel Jessie; Littlejohn, Allison; McGill, Lou; Beetham, Helen (2016) - Journal article
    Open educational resources (OER) have been promoted as a path to universal education, supporting economic development and intercultural dialogue. However, to realise these benefits requires greater understanding of the ...
  • Impact of an L5 magnetograph on nonpotential solar global magnetic field modeling 

    Mackay, Duncan Hendry; Yeates, Anthony Robinson; Bocquet, Francois-Xavier (2016-07-12) - Journal article
    We present the first theoretical study to consider what improvement could be obtained in global non-potential modeling of the solar corona if magnetograph data were available from the L5 Lagrange point, in addition to from ...
  • Explosive fragmentation of liquids in spherical geometry 

    Milne, Alexander Mitchell; Longbottom, Aaron William; Frost, David; Loiseau, Jason; Goroshin, Samuel; Petel, Oren (2016-07-08) - Journal article
    Rapid acceleration of a spherical shell of liquid following detonation of a high explosive causes the liquid to form fine jets that are similar in appearance to the particle jets that are formed during explosive dispersal ...
  • Impact of flux distribution on elementary heating events 

    O'Hara, Jennifer Patricia; De Moortel, Ineke (2016-06-23) - Journal article
    Context. The complex magnetic field on the solar surface has been shown to contain a range of sizes and distributions of magnetic flux structures. The dynamic evolution of this magnetic carpet by photospheric flows provides ...
