The role of small-scale surface motions in the transfer of twist to a solar jet from a remote stable flux rope View all abstracts by submitter

Context. Jets often have a helical structure containing ejected plasma that is both hot and also cooler and denser than the corona. Various mechanisms have been proposed to explain how jets are triggered, primarily attributed to a magnetic reconnection between the emergence of magnetic flux and environment or that of twisted photospheric motions that bring the system into a state of instability. Aims. Multi-wavelength observations of a twisted jet observed with the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) onboard the Solar Dynamics Observatory and the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) were used to understand how the twist was injected into the jet, thanks to the IRIS spectrographic slit fortuitously crossing the reconnection site at that time. Methods. We followed the magnetic history of the active region based on the analysis of the Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager vector magnetic field computed with the UNNOFIT code. The nature and dynamics of the jet reconnection site are characterized by the IRIS spectra. Results. This region is the result of the collapse of two emerging magnetic fluxes (EMFs) overlaid by arch filament systems that have been well-observed with AIA, IRIS, and the New Vacuum Solar Telescope in Hα. In the magnetic field maps, we found evidence of the pattern of a long sigmoidal flux rope (FR) along the polarity inversion line between the two EMFs, which is the site of the reconnection. Before the jet, an extension of the FR was present and a part of it was detached and formed a small bipole with a bald patch (BP) region, which dynamically became an X-current sheet over the dome of one EMF where the reconnection took place. At the time of the reconnection, the Mg II spectra exhibited a strong extension of the blue wing that is decreasing over a distance of 10 Mm (from -300 km s-1 to a few km s-1). This is the signature of the transfer of the twist to the jet. Conclusions. A comparison with numerical magnetohydrodynamics simulations confirms the existence of the long FR. We conjecture that there is a transfer of twist to the jet during the extension of the FR to the reconnection site without FR eruption. The reconnection would start in the low atmosphere in the BP reconnection region and extend at an X-point along the current sheet formed above.
