Magnetic Helicity in Emerging Solar Active Regions View all abstracts by submitter

Using vector magnetic field data from the Helioseismic and MagneticImager (HMI) instrument aboard the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO),we study magnetic helicity injection into the corona in emergingactive regions and examine the hemispheric helicity rule. In everyregion studied, photospheric shearing motion contributes most of thehelicity accumulated in the corona. In a sample of 28 emerging activeregions, 17 active regions follow the hemisphere rule (61% ± 18% at a95% confidence interval). Magnetic helicity and twist in 25 activeregions (89% ± 11%) have the same sign. The maximum magnetic twist,which depends on the size of an active region, is inferred in a sampleof 23 emerging active regions with a bipolar magnetic fieldconfiguration.Coronal holes are regions on the Sun's surface that mapthe footprints of open magnetic field lines. We have developed anautomated routine to detect and track boundaries of long-lived coronalholes using full-disk extreme-ultraviolet (EUV) images obtained bySOHO
