The dynamic response of the corona to photospheric driving
Ph.-A. Bourdin, S. Bingert, H. Peter


We present 3D MHD numerical experiments of coronal dynamics driven by photospheric horizontal motions. By comparing model runs with different resolutions we investigate scaling effects of the photospheric driver to the heating rate in the corona. The scalability of the Pencil Code has been tested on the JuRoPA supercomputing cluster with up to 2028 CPU cores. This has been done to prepare larger simulations of the connection between the chromosphere and the corona. The goal is to understand the injection of energy into the corona and the loading of coronal structures with mass.
