Abstract:

Active regions on the Sun, is one of the unique features of the Sun's Magnetic field. As the sun rotates flux tubes come through the suns surface and create these active regions. In this talk, I will be focusing on when the active regions are first emerging from below the surface of the sun and how different features of the active regions emergence are interacting with each other to explain why they do what they do.
