Heating Events Observed in the Quiet Corona View all abstracts by submitter

Arnold Benz   Submitted: 1999-11-04 13:01

The emission measure of the quiet corona, defined by the plasma hotter than one million degrees, has been observed by EIT on SoHO to fluctuate in a alrge majority of the 1900km x 1900km pixels during the observing time of 42 minutes. In the average, the larger the emission measure in a pixel, the more it fluctuates. Increases in emission measure constitute a major energy input into the corona, suggesting that the lower corona is not just heated, but continuous- continuously replenished by chromospheric material heated to coronal temperatur- temperatures. We test the hypothesis that the coronal heat input may be largely by chromospheric evaporation. ESA Special Publication, in press
