Magnetic Reconnection

(change in magnetic topology within a fluid)

Magnetic Reconnection is the adjustment of magnetic lines in a magnetic field. Magnetic reconnection around the Sun can be seen as Solar Flare sand similarly around Earth are the Auroras. A reconnection event can convert magnetic energy to kinetic and thermal energy.
