A schematic low plasma-β configuration of an accretion shock. A strong magnetic field penetrates the chromosphere and confines the plasma in flux tubes. The accretion stream impacts on the surface and pushes the chromosphere down to the point where the ram pressure is equal to the stellar pressure. The computational box for the simulations presented in this paper is indicated with a dashed line.
