This page contains movies relating to the papers "Low mass planet migration in magnetically torqued dead zones I: Static migration torque", McNally, Nelson, Paardekooper, Gressel, Lyra, 2017 and "Low mass planet migration in magnetically torqued dead zones - II. Flow-locked and runaway migration, and a torque prescription", McNally, Nelson, Paardekooper 2018 . From Paper I first are animated versions of Figure 6, showing the flow in the corotation region, and Figure 7, showing vortensity in a cut through the corotation region oposite of the planet location.

Relating to Paper II, this movie extends Figure 7 of that paper, by showing the time evolution of the corotation region vortensity contrasts, the planet position, and the total torques.
