Plasma velocity vector (black arrows) at the very beginning of the simulation for the case where the foot points of the spine field lines are moved. One of the vortices rotates clockwise, while the other rotates counterclockwise. Also shown are the fan and spine field lines, together with the Z component of the magnetic field at the bottom of the simulation box.
