Cover image
A direct numerical simulation of incompressible magnetohydrodynamic plasma turbulence in the presence of a strong guide field. The resolution
of the simulation is 2048x2048x128. The image shows the presence and development of strong current sheets and instabilities in the current
density, in one of the planes perpendicular to the guide field. Overlaid on this is an image of a solar prominence eruption observed by the NASA
Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) on March 16, 2013. Simulation image is provided by Dr. Romain Meyrand and the SDO image is from the SDO
Gallery, image 187 [].
