1 3D Reconnection in Prominences

2 Gibson & Fan 2006 Negative Points: Pros and Cons of the Flux-Rope-Dip Model 4. Flux ropes are a basic element of low  plasmas 2. Good predictor of location & shape 1. A physical mechanism for static support 3. Provides eruptive mechanism 1. Inconsistent with observed flows in barbs 2. Provides no mechanism for the generation of flows 3. Ignores radiation dynamics 4. Ignores ever present 3D reconnection Positive Points:

7 Prominence Flows in Barbs Doppler Shift Observations: Schmieder et al Zirker et al. Hinode SOT

8 Karpen & Antiochos 2008 Apparent Motions Generated by Steady Heating What would this look line in a 3D model? 1D loop model with asymmetric heating at chromosphere loop top loop feet (loop shape is distorted)

9 What Is the Effect of Magnetic Carpet Reconnection? H  from Hinode SOT

10 ambiguity of field line motion in 3D Slip-Running Reconnection (Aulanier, Pariat, Démoulin 2006) erupted configuration initial configuration vertical field at surface reconnection leads to apparent motion of flux rope footprint

11 Flux Tube Shredding in 3D Reconnection collision of two flux tubes at 90º Linton & Priest 2003

12 Apparent motions due to radiation? Moving field lines & dips? Chaotic 3D reconnection? (shredding) Dip overflows?
