Hi, I have a question regarding Gauss's law and magnetic reconnection. From what I have heard Gauss's law for magnetism (Div B = 0) clearly states that magnetic reconnection cannot occur. Furthermore, according to the THEMIS project, magnetic reconnection triggers an acceleration that creates aurora borealis. My question is in regard to what contradictions there are between Gauss's law and magnetic reconnection. I appreciate any help given. Best regards// Aurora Austra.
