Abstract:

We investigate the relation between the solar corona and high-speed solar wind measured from interplanetary scintillations IPS. Preliminary results show that regions of high coronal intensity of the 5303 A Fe XIV green line are associated with low IPS velocities, whereas regions of low intensity are associated with both low and high velocities. There is some indication at high heliographic latitudes that the IPS velocity is inversely correlated with the angular divergence of the coronal magnetic field. We present a new model for the turbulence profile in a solar wind stream, which will be used to refine our interpretation of IPS data. Author
