Title: 3-D VPIC simulation of an vortex-induced reconnection event observed by MMS

The data set consists of a 3-D fully kinetic (VPIC) simulation of an in-situ observation event at the Earth's magnetopause by the NASA MMS spacecraft on September 8, 2015. The results show a turbulent development of magnetic reconnection induced by the Kelvin-Helmohltz vortex, and resulting significantly efficient plasma mixing across the magnetopause. The vortex-induced reconnection signatures are well consistent with the MMS observations. These results are published in some scientific journals such as Nature Communications. Fortran unformatted files with 1024x1536x512 cells, which have been compressed from original ones with 2048x3072x1024 cells, are archived for selected time slices of field and moment data shown in these papers.

  1. The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) was established at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 2004 with the mission of accelerating scientific discovery and engineering progress by providing outstanding computing and data management resources to high-priority research and development projects. OLCF unveiled Titan in 2013, which is capable of 27 petaflops. Titan is one of the first hybrid architecture systems—a combination of graphics processing units (GPUs), and the more conventional central processing units (CPUs) that have served as number crunchers in computers for decades. The OLCF gives the world’s most advanced computational researchers an opportunity to tackle problems that wouldmore » be unthinkable on other systems.
