Abstract: This proceedings paper is based on a much longer research paper that was published during the conference (Toth et al. 2008). We present a conservative second order accurate finite volume discretization of the magnetohydrodynamics equations including the Hall term on three dimensional block adaptive grids with Cartesian or generalized coordinates. Both explicit and implicit time integration schemes are developed. The parallel scaling and robustness are demonstrated by three dimensional simulations of planetary magnetospheres.
