The width, density and outflow of solar coronal streamers

10 Mar 2020 Morgan Huw Cook Anthony C.

Characterising the large-scale structure and plasma properties of the inner corona is crucial to understand the source and subsequent expansion of the solar wind and related space weather effects. Here we apply a new coronal rotational tomography method, along with a method to narrow streamers and refine the density estimate, to COR2A/STEREO observations from a period near solar minimum and maximum, gaining density maps for heights between 4 and 8\Rs...
