Caption: Figure 3.

Snapshot of the fastest growing mode of a tearing instability in the current sheet. The background color is the latitudinal Alfvén speed vA,θ. The Lundquist number S is equal to 1.2 × 106, 1.2 × 105 in the top and the bottom panel, respectively. The aspect ratio is not respected to ease the visualization of the structures at the HCS.
