Shock-Cloud Interaction in the Solar Corona View all abstracts by submitter

Flare associated coronal shock waves sometimes interact with solar prominences leading to large amplitude prominence oscillations. Such prominence activation gives us unique opportunity to track time evolution of shock-cloud interaction in cosmic plasmas. Although the dynamics of interstellar shock-cloud interaction is extensively studied, coronal shock-solar prominence interaction is rarely studied in the context of shock-cloud interaction. Associated with X5.4 class solar flare occurred on 7 March, 2012, a globally propagated coronal shock wave interacted with a polar prominence leading to large amplitude prominence oscillation. In this paper, we studied bulk acceleration and excitation of internal flow of the shocked prominence using three-dimensional MHD simulations. We studied eight magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulation runs with different mass density structure of the prominence, and one hydrodynamic simulation run, and compared the result. In order to compare observed motion of activated prominence with corresponding simulation, we also studied prominence activation by injection of triangular shaped coronal shock. We found that magnetic tension force mainly accelerate (and then decelerate) the prominence. The internal flow, on the other hand, is excited during the shock front sweeps through the the prominence and damps almost exponentially. We construct phenomenological model of bulk momentum transfer from shock to the prominence, which agreed quantitatively with all the simulation results. Based on the phenomenological prominence-activation model, we diagnosed physical parameters of coronal shock wave. The estimated energy of the coronal shock is several percent of total energy released during the X5.4 flare.
