Figure 3

The conical wind/jet from a slowly rotating star at time t=860 . The background shows the poloidal matter flux density ρ v p and the lines show the poloidal projections of the magnetic field. The red vectors show the poloidal matter velocity v p . Dimensional values can be obtained from Table 1. For example for a CTTS, t 0 =0.366 days, R 0 =2 R , t=860 corresponds to 315 days, and the simulation region is 0.39 AU in radius. The horizontal axis shows the distance from the star in units of the reference radius R 0 . For this case α ν =0.3 and α η =0.1.
