Due to buoyancy instabilities, they move upward and emerge into the solar atmosphere in the form of Ω-shaped flux tubes (Zwaan 1985).

In the low tension case, the decreased tension allows the center of the flux tube to rise, forming a crescent shape, shown in Figure 6(h).

During this evolution, the mass in the center of the tube drains to the lowest possible location which is at either end of this crescent shape.
Tests of Dynamical Flux Emergence as a Mechanism for CME Initiation
As far as we are aware, the mechanism shown here for the creation of a coronal flux rope from an emerging flux tube whose cross section distorts into a crescent shape has not been seen before.
Tests of Dynamical Flux Emergence as a Mechanism for CME Initiation
The centers of the high tension tubes stay at the photosphere, while the center of the low tension tube rises to a height of about 8Mm as the tube is deformed into a crescent shaped current sheet and the resulting coronal flux rope rises.
Tests of Dynamical Flux Emergence as a Mechanism for CME Initiation
The expanding shell of the tube causes a crescent shaped current sheet to be formed as the original null is stretched over this shell.
Tests of Dynamical Flux Emergence as a Mechanism for CME Initiation
Assuming that the eleven tubes are nearly uniform in gas content, construction and electric field shape over the period of data taking, the relationship between drift radius is found through a self calibrating process, by minimizing the χ2 of the radius function and track radius of each tube.
