Saturation of the turbulent dynamo

Schober, Jennifer; Schleicher, D.R.G.; Federrath, Christoph; Bovino, Stefano; Klessen, R.


The origin of strong magnetic fields in the Universe can be explained by amplifying weak seed fields via turbulent motions on small spatial scales and subsequently transporting the magnetic energy to larger scales. This process is known as the turbulent dynamo and depends on the properties of turbulence, i.e., on the hydrodynamical Reynolds number and the compressibility of the gas, and on the magnetic diffusivity. While we know the growth rate of the magnetic energy in the linear regime, the...[Show more]
