Abstract

Direct numerical simulations of magnetohydrodynamic turbulence with kinetic energy and cross helicity injections at large scales are performed. It was observed that cross helicity changes its sign as we go from large and intermediate scales to small scales. In addition, the magnetic reconnections are strongest in the regions, where the cross helicity changes the sign and becomes smallest in magnitude. Thus, our simulations provide an important opportunity to explore the regions of magnetic reconnections in nonlinear MHD.
