A potential magnetic field calculator for solar physics applications using staggered grids View all abstracts by submitter

A program has been designed for accurately generating a potential magnetic field on a staggered grid by extrapolating the magnetic field normal to the photospheric surface. The code first calculates a magnetic potential using the Green's function method and then uses a finite differencing scheme to calculate the magnetic field from the potential. A new finite differencing formula was derived which accounts for grid staggering, it is shown that this formula gives a numerical approximation that is closest to the real potential field. It is also shown that extending the region over which normal photospheric field is specified can improve the accuracy of the potential field produced. The program is a FORTRAN 90 code that can be used to generate potential magnetic field inputs for Lare3d and other MHD solvers that use a staggered grid for magnetic field components. The program can be parallelised to run quickly over multiple computing cores. The code and supporting description are provided in the appendices and can also be found at https://github.com/calboo/Potential_Field_Calculator.
