Dynamical Splitting Of A Spot-producing Magnetic Ring In A Nonlinear Shallow-water Model

Snapshots during splitting of a 6-degree toroidal ring into two
Wednesday, June 30, 2021

We explore the fundamental physics of narrow toroidal rings during their nonlinear magnetohydrodynamic evolution at tachocline depths. Using a shallow-water model, we simulate the nonlinear evolution of spot-producing toroidal rings of 6-degree latitudinal width and peak field of 15 kG.
