136. The Trigger Mechanism of Recurrent Solar Active Region Jets Revealed by the Magnetic Properties of a Coronal Geyser Site

This study explores the magnetic triggers of recurrent active region jets. Both widely debated triggers, namely, flux cancellation and flux emergence, are associated alternatively to the apparently homologous jets.

121. The Origin of Major Solar Activity: Collisional Shearing between Nonconjugated Polarities of Multiple Bipoles Emerging within Active Regions

Magnetic flux of opposite polarities belonging to two different emerging/emerged bipoles inside multipolar magnetic regions, can experience “collisional shearing”, a process resulting in strong shearing and fast cancellation of magnetic flux near the polarity inversion line. This type of flux cancellation is found to be the cause of a succession of major flares and CMEs in complex active regions.

113. What Makes CME-producing Solar Eruptions Happen?  Insight from Coronal Jets

Contributed by Alphonse Sterling. Posted on September 28, 2018

Jets resulting from eruption of minifilaments have lots of similarities to CMEs resulting from eruptions of large-scale filaments. This study on occurrences of jets can shed light on our understanding of what causes CME eruptions.
