138. Electric Current Neutralization in Solar Active Regions and Its Relation to Eruptive Activity

Contributed by Ellis Avallone. Posted on March 11, 2020

Electric current neutralization, which measures the ratio of direct current and return current inside active regions (ARs), is studied for a total of 30 AR samples. It is found that flare-productive ARs are more likely to exhibit non-neutralized currents than those flare-quiet ARs.
