Electric Currents Related to Reconnection

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 341)


The topological model of a flare, with a reasonable accuracy, predicts the location of a flare energy source in the corona. In order to clarify an origin of this energy, we have to consider the non-potential part of magnetic field in an active region. In this Chapter, we discuss the main electric currents related to magnetic reconnection in a large solar flare. More specificaly, we continue a study of the Bastille day 2000 flare which topological model was considered in a previous Chapter
