Bihelical Magnetic Relaxation and Large Scale Magnetic FIeld Growth View all abstracts by submitter

Eric Blackman   Submitted: 2004-07-07 21:19

A unified, three-scale system of equations accommodating nonlinear velocity driven helical dynamos, as well as time-dependent relaxation of magnetically dominated unihelical or bihelical systems is derived and solved herein. When opposite magnetic helicities of equal magnitude are injected on the intermediate and small scales, the large scale magnetic helicity grows kinematically (independent of the magnetic Reynolds number) to equal that on the intermediate scale. For both free and driven relaxation large scale fields are rapidly produced. Subsequently, a dissipation-limited dynamo, driven by growth of small scale kinetic helicity, further amplifies the large scale field. The results are important for astrophysical coronae fed with bihelical structures by dynamos in their host rotators. The large scale for the rotator corresponds to the intermediate scale for the corona. That bihelical magnetic relaxation can produce global scale fields may help to explain the formation of astrophysical coronal holes and magnetohydrodynamic outflows.
