It is well known that many active regions (ARs) last longer than one solar rotation, however, they are often assigned one NOAA AR number for each rotation. This work lists most, if not all, of the ARs that are a same AR but with different AR numbers.
HMI magnetic field synoptic maps are used to evaluate the magnetic field structures’ organization and propagation as a function of time and latitude. It is demonstrated that the organization of longitudinal structures observed on synoptic maps is proportional to the level of activity at given latitudes.
This study reveals correlations between the motion of pores and the maximum magnetic pressure difference at their opposite edges, but no causal relationship between the two is found.
An analysis of two active regions shows that differently evolving ARs may produce major eruptive flares even when, in addition to the accumulation of significant free magnetic energy budgets, they accumulate large amounts of both left- and right-handed helicity without a strong dominance of one handedness over the other.
The CGEM team identified and corrected two artifacts that had affected the electric field calculation for a small number of active regions.
This study reveals that a significant number of coronal-hole field lines extend beyond the coronal-hole boundaries and that many coronal-holes contain no open magnetic field lines.
Inverse Evershed flow is derived from chromospheric observations. Coupling these flow with the non force-free model, the authors find that the flow is driven along magnetic field lines connecting network elements with the outer penumbra by a gas pressure difference.
Briefly shown here are some results from a new global coronal MHD simulation model, with a new method to use the three-component vector HMI synoptic maps as time-dependent boundary values.
A statistical study of emerging active regions demonstrates that these ARs tend to produce CMEs when they accumulate significant budgets of both magnetic helicity and energy.
The authors show that the new inversion code for the HMI’s vector field reduces the number of pixels that reverse signs after passing the central meridian. The analysis also reveals that the radial components of the HMI’s vector magnetic fields have a hemispheric bias, too.
