Stratified Shearing Box

Magnetic energy evolution in a stratified (i.e., vertical gravity included) shearing box calculation of a disk subject to the magnetorotational instability. Shearing boxes are local, co-rotating disk patches and are particularly useful in resolving small disk scales. A simplified "cartoon" representation of the full disk is included to illustrate the concept of a shearing box.
