Solar-like differential rotation and equatorward migration in a convective dynamo with a coronal envelope
2012 (English)In: Proc. Int. Astron. Union, 2012, no S294, 307-312 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
We present results of convective turbulent dynamo simulations including a coronal layer in a spherical wedge. We find an equatorward migration of the radial and azimuthal fields similar to the behavior of sunspots during the solar cycle. The migration of the field coexist with a spoke-like differential rotation and anti-solar (clockwise) meridional circulation. Even though the migration extends over the whole convection zone, the mechanism causing this is not yet fully understood.
