State of the evolution of MHD simulation at two times. Figure demonstrates two reconnection regimes obtained during one simulation. Left panel shows state at t = 181 tA when slow Sweet-Parker reconnection phase is under way. Right panel shows state at t = 382 tA after the reconnection transitioned into faster turbulent regime. The colour represents the out-of-plane current superimposed with the in-plane projection of magnetic field lines (contours of the magnetic surfaces). The simulation was performed with FlipMHD code.
