Simple mean field dynamo

Simple Mean field dynamo

  • Parker (1955) was the first to produce quasi-realistic non-axisymmetric velocity distributions with qualitative solutions for B magnetic field

  • The - mean field dynamo theory was introduced by Steenback, Krause & Raedler (1966) and solutions of these equations supported Parker’s picture.

Helicity and dynamo theory solar magnetic fields

  • So, the theory requires cyclonic motions (mirror asymmetry of convection), or the alpha-effect to change sign across the equator and be the same from cycle to cycle!

Helicity and dynamo theory solar magnetic fields

20 years systematic monitoring of the solar vector magnetic fields in active regions taken at Huairou Solar observing station, China (1988-2005…)

More observations from Mitaka (Japan) and also Mees, MSFC (USA) etc.,

but only Huairoudata systematically cover 20 year period!

Data reduction

Data Reduction

  • 983 active regions; 6630 vector magnetograms observed at Huairou Solar Observing Station;

  • Time average: 2 year bins (1988-2005);

  • Latitudinal average: 7o bins;

    So, each bin contains 30+ magnetograms =>

    => independent statistics in each bin: averages

    with confidence intervals (Student t distribution)

    We assume the data subsamples equivalent to ensembles of turbulent pulsations, so we gather mean quantities in the sense of dynamo theory

Compare

Compare:

Qualitatively, the both helical quantities are distributed in a similar manner. So, despite the noisy nature of the data, accuracy of measurements is reliable.


Helicity and dynamo theory solar magnetic fields

  • The hemispheric sign rule for helicity:

    Northern hemisphere: mainly negative;

    Southern hemisphere: mainly positive.

    Does not change sign

    from one 11-yr cycle to another!

    While neither current helicity, nor twist are exactly quadratic with magnetic field


Regular inversion of the hemispheric rule

Regular inversion of the hemispheric rule:

  • There are particular latitudes and times over the solar cycle at which the hemispheric rule is inverted, mainly at the raise and fall of the 11-yr cycle

  • This invertion is statistically significant ! (cf. Bao et al. 2000, see also Sokoloff et al. 2008)


Helicity plays an important role in the solar dynamo mechanism

Helicity plays an important role in the solar dynamo mechanism!

  • Current helicity and twist follow the propagation of the magnetic activity dynamo waves recorded by sunspots and “mean” magnetic fields in active regions
