Top: sequence of cartoons illustrating the occurrence of a single reconnection event in one of the pseudo-streamer-like arcades considered here (blue field lines) leading to a classical standard jet, see Fig. 1 of Moore et al. (2010). The interchange reconnection occurs in the neutral current sheet (dashed line), leading to the formation of newly open and closed (red) field lines and to the ejection of a plasma packet along the open field lines.. Bottom: proposed interpretation of the observed jet observational properties. In particular, the drift is ascribed to many small-scale reconnections occur sequentially along a spine inclined with respect to the line of sight (see text).
