Requirements for Coupled Simulations

- Input Data
- - 8 variables (2x120x180 cells) = 2.7 MBytes
- - 400 time levels (1h interval) = 1 GByte
- Output Data
- - 8 variables (256x120x180 cells) = 340 Mbytes
- - 50 time levels (2h interval) = 17 GByte
- - visualization = + 10-30 GByte

Solar eruption evolves into a traveling disturbance of interplanetary magnetic field that significantly exceeds its original angular size

Flux rope (white lines) is initially connected to the Sun, but magnetic field lines reconfigure during its propagation. Color shows density in the equatorial plane. Black circle is boundary between the coronal and heliospheric regions (30 Rs).

N, T, and Bphi in the equatorial plane and model interface seen from below. (Computations are not performed for +-30 deg from the poles). Magnetic field is traced back to Sun.

The same but 20 hours later. Magnetic field lines (tracing starts from the heliosphere) does not reach the Sun; they reconfigure in the coronal region.
