Abstract:

Large-scale approx 10 deg emission features visible in soft x-ray photographs from the American Science and Engineering, Inc. ASE spectrographic telescope S-054 on Skylab have been superposed on H-alpha Synoptic Charts McIntosh, 1975 for Carrington Rotations 1601 through 1610. The charts identify loop arcades and loop complexes associated with strong magnetic fields, as well as coronal holes and areas devoid of emission loops. Although not adequate for the study of the geometry of indiviudal features, the charts convey a global sense of coronal structure which is often difficult to obtain from individual disk images.
