|Abstract||It is supposed that local and transient reconnection in the plasma boundary layer can be caused by the impact and switch-off of a single directional transverse shear flow. MHD (magnetohydrodynamic) simulation is used to investigate the reconnection processes in the two cases. It is found that if the inflow is homogeneous, it does not cause reconnection; if the inflow is shearing flow, no matter how great the shear of the flow is, it may cause reconnection either during impacting period or after stop impacting. It is pointed out that the sudden stop of external force may be an important triggering mechanism of energy transformation and reconnection in the plasma boundary layer region.|
