ABSTRACT
We present preliminary results of modelling 2D mag­
netic reconnection in the solar transition region
environment. Compressible magnetohydrodynamic
(MHD) simulations are performed by using a 2D
MHD code based on staggered meshes. The present
work is an attempt to numerically simulate mag­
netic reconnection that occurs between newly emerg­
ing magnetic flux and the pre­existing network field,
which is widely believed to cause explosive events
