Temporal behaviors of the electric field at the X point (, ), the outflow velocity at (, ), and the inflow velocity at (, , ) for the resistivity models (A) and (B); also, those for the uniform resistivity model with and the Spitzer resistivity model with , which are assumed for , are shown [ for the case of (iv)].
(Color online) Magnetic field configurations in the plane and contour lines of the reconnected field component with the interval of 0.06 in the plane for the model (B); at , the -directional extent of the plasmoid, , and that of the fast reconnection region, , are indicated.
(Color online) Current density vectors in the chromosphere at different times for the model (B), where the arrows indicate and the blue ; also, current flow lines, which start from the segment, at , and are drawn along the current density vectors, are shown at in the left bottom, indicating the current wedge profile.
(Color online) Plasma flow vectors and contour lines of the Joule heating in the , , and planes.
(Color online) Distributions of temperature ; in the chromosphere , contour lines are shown with the interval of 0.03, and for the region of enhanced temperature is indicated by brightening.
