On the Origin of Otho-Gardenhose Heliospheric Flux

10 Jan 2019 Lockwood Mike Owens Mat Macneil Allan

Parker spiral theory predicts the heliospheric magnetic field (HMF) will have components of opposite polarity radially toward the Sun and tangentially antiparallel to the solar rotation (i.e. in GSE coordinates, with Bx/By<0). This theory explains the average orientation of the HMF very well but does not predict orthogardenhose (OGH) flux with BX/BY>0 that is often observed... (read more)
