Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle . Examines the fundamental plasma-physical process of magnetic reconnection from an interdisciplinary perspective, reviewing recent reconnection research in the fields of solar and space physics, astrophysics, and laboratory plasma physics ; Presents both theoretical and observational results relating to key questions in reconnection research.

    Recent progress in understanding the physics of magnetic reconnection is conveniently summarized in terms of a phase diagram which organizes the essential dynamics for a wide variety of applications in heliophysics, laboratory, and astrophysics. The two key dimensionless parameters are the Lundquist number and the macrosopic system size in units of the ion Cited by: The reconnection of magnetic fields is one of the most fascinating processes in plasma physics, responsible for phenomena such as solar flares and magnetospheric substorms. The concept of reconnection has developed through recent advances in exploring the magnetospheres of the Sun and Earth through theory, computer simulations and spacecraft 5/5(1).

This monograph reviews the basic concepts of the magnetic reconnection phenomenon. It describes the observational and theoretical evidence for the occurrence of reconnection in space plasmas, and it discusses the roles of reconnection in laboratory plasmas where the reconnection process offers practical benefits in some magnetic fusion experiments.

Abstract AGU is publishing Magnetic Reconnection in Space and Laboratory Plasmas, as volume 30 of the Geophysical Monograph Series (members $; nonmembers $). This volume is based on the Chapman Conference on Magnetic Reconnection, which was held at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in October Cited by: The book focuses on the various reconnection mechanisms dominating magnetic processes under the different plasma conditions encountered in astrophysical systems and in laboratory fusion devices.

In the late s it proved equally important in understanding turbulence in the solar wind and the interplanetary magnetic field. Models of magnetic reconnection in space plasmas generally consider only a segment of the magnetic field lines.

The consideration of only a segment of the lines is shown to lead to paradoxical results in which reconnection can be impossible even in a magnetic field constrained to be curl free or can be at an Alfvén rate even when the plasma is a perfect Cited by: From the Back Cover.

This book provides an overview of recent research highlights in the main areas of application of magnetic reconnection (MR), including planetary, solar and magnetospheric physics and astrophysics.

Magnetic reconnection is a fundamental physical process in various astrophysical, space, and laboratory environments. Many pieces of evidence for magnetic reconnection have been uncovered. However, its specific processes that could be fragmented and turbulent have been short of direct observational evidence.

Here, we present observations Cited by: Magnetic reconnection (henceforth called "reconnection") refers to the breaking and reconnecting of oppositely directed magnetic field lines in a plasma.

In the process, magnetic field energy is converted to plasma kinetic and thermal energy. Magnetic helicity in space and laboratory plasmas.
