Summary of UCB MURI workshop on vector magnetograms. Have picked 2 observed events for targeted study and modeling: AR8210 (May 1, 1998), and AR8038 (May 12, 1997)
This active region was extremely well observed, was responsible for a number of flares and CMEs, and has a fascinating evolution across the solar disk…
Terms on LHS describe evolution driven by horizontal motion; RHS describes evolution due to flux emergence or submergence
Apply a velocity field to an image consisting of random hash – can LCT correctly recover the velocity?
Here, it did correctly find the applied horizontal velocity field…
2 images of Bz taken at a horizontal plane of one of Bill Abbett’s flux emergence simulations:
Note LCT velocity is very wrong in the outer regions…
