Figure 3

Spatial profile of the charge and current densities together with magnetic field lines at ω ci t = 6. The magnitude of the charge density ρ = e(N i − N e ) and the magnitudes of current density J x , J y , and J z components are shown by the jet-scale colormap. The magnitude of the charge density is normalized by the initial charge density of solar wind ions eN 0 , and the magnitude of the current density is normalized by eN 0 V s . The results from the low-resolution run (Umeda and Ito 2014) and the high-resolution run are shown in the top and bottom panels, respectively.
