Three-dimensional Magnetic Reconnection Triggering an X-class Confined Flare in Active Region 12192 View all abstracts by submitter

We present an extensive analysis of the X2.0-class confined flare on 2014 October 27 in the great active region AR 12192, observed by the IRIS and the SDO. The slipping motion of the substructures within the negative-polarity flare ribbon (R1) and continual reconnection-induced flows during the confined flare are first presented. The substructures within ribbon R1 were observed to slip in opposite directions at apparent speeds of 10-70 km s-1. The slipping motion exhibited the quasi-periodic pattern with a period of 80-110 s, which can be observed since the flare start and throughout the impulsive phase of the flare. Simultaneously quasi-periodic flows moved along a reverse-S shaped filament, with an average period of about 90 s. The period of reconnection-induced flows is similar to that of the slippage of ribbon substructures, implying the occurrence of quasi-periodic slipping magnetic reconnection. The spectral observations showed that the Si IV line was blueshifted by 50-240 km s-1 at the location of the flows. During the process of the flare, the filament did not show the rise phase and was not associated with any failed eruption. The flare mainly consisted of two sets of magnetic systems, with both of their east ends anchoring in ribbon R1. We suggest that the slipping magnetic reconnection between two magnetic systems triggers the confined flare.
