active region

A space weather term to describe a localized, transient volume of the solar atmosphere in which plage, sunspots, faculae, solar flares, etc., may be observed. Active regions are the result of enhanced magnetic fields; they can have bipolar or multi-polar magnetic fields, and can be ephemeral to long-lived in nature.
