Abstract

The three-dimensional magnetic topology of the solar corona is incredibly complex and its effect on the nature of 3D reconnection is profound. We study the supposedly simple topology of a small scale X-ray bright point observed by TRACE and SOHO/MDl, and how it is driven by reconnection when it forms and during the early stages of its lifetime.
