Flows in NOAA AR 8210: An overview of MURI progress to thru Feb.’04. Modelers prescribe fields and flows ( B, v ) to drive eruptions in MHD simulations MURI goal: use data to do this! Must find ( B, v ). IVM & MDI tell us B . How do we get v ? LCT: commonly used method, but not acceptable!
2. then drive boundary with velocities v(x,y,t) to store energy and, perhaps,
3. trigger an eruption!
