Flux Rope

(rope-shaped structure in magnetic fields associated with coronal mass ejections)

A Flux Rope is a rope-shaped configuration of Magnetic Flux (B) topology associated with some Coronal Mass Ejections (CME). It consists of Flux lines twisted around a central tube-shaped space. Flux Ropes can also occur in the Earth's magnetic field.
