Physical processes involved in the EUV "Surge" Event of 09 May 2012 View all abstracts by submitter

We study an EUV confined ejection observed on 09 May 2012 in active region (AR) NOAA 11476. For the analysis we use observations in multiple wavelengths (EUV, X-rays, Hα, and magnetograms) from a variety of ground-based and space instruments. The magnetic configuration showed the presence of two rotating bipoles within the following polarity of the AR. This evolution was present along some tens of hours before the studied event and continued even later. During this period the magnetic flux of both bipoles was continuously decreasing. A minifilament with a length of ≈ 30" lay along the photospheric inversion line of the largest bipole. The minifilament was observed to erupt accompanied by an M4.7 flare (SOL20120509T12:23:00). Consequently, dense material, as well as twist, was injected along closed loops in the form of a very broad ejection whose morphology resembles that of typical Hα surges. We conclude that the flare and eruption can be explained as due to two reconnection processes, one occurring below the erupting minifilament and another one above it. This second process injects the minifilament plasma within the reconnected closed loops linking the main AR polarities. Analyzing the magnetic topology using a force-free model of the coronal field, we identify the location of quasi- separatix layers (QSLs), where reconnection is prone to occur, and present a detailed interpretation of the chromospheric and coronal eruption observations.
