Abstract: We present the first results of a new numerical model designed to simultaneously evolve the upper convection zone and low-corona within a single computational domain. We characterize (1) the properties of a quiet-Sun model atmosphere that forms as a result of the action of a convective dynamo; (2) the efficacy of parameterized cooling as a means of approximating the physics of optically-thick radiative transfer in the model chromosphere; (3) the magnetic and thermodynamic properties of the quiet-Sun atmosphere, and the magnetic connectivity between the turbulent sub-surface layers and corona; and (4) the properties of horizontally-directed magnetic fields in the low atmosphere.
