Long-term evolution of active regions

Aims:   Study the global properties of the magnetic flux tubes forming active regions. This provides important informations on:
   the origin of these flux tubes (formation,and transport in the convective zone)
   the "boundary conditions" for flares and coronal mass ejections.
