Wind–MRI interactions in local models of protoplanetary discs – I. Ohmic resistivity

Philip Leung & Gordon Ogilvie
A magnetic disc wind is an important mechanism that may be responsible for driving accretion and structure formation in protoplanetary discs. Recent numerical simulations have shown that these winds can take either the traditional ‘hourglass’ symmetry about the mid-plane, or a ‘slanted’ symmetry dominated by a mid-plane toroidal field of a single sign. The formation of this slanted symmetry state has not previously been explained. We use radially local 1D vertical shearing box simulations to...
