Three-dimensional Density Structure of a Solar Coronal Streamer Observed by SOHO/LASCO and STEREO/COR2 in Quadrature View all abstracts by submitter

Helmet streamers are a prominent manifestation of magnetic structures with current sheets in the solar corona. These large-scale structures are regions with high plasma density, overlying active regions and lament channels. We investigate the three-dimensional (3D) structure of a coronal streamer, observed simultaneously by white-light coronagraphs from two vantage points near quadrature (SOHO/LASCO and STEREO/COR2). We design a forward model based on plausible assumptions about the 3D streamer structure taken from physical models (a plasma slab centered around a current sheet). The streamer stalk is approximated by a plasma slab, with electron density that is characterized by three separate functions describing the radial, transverse and face-on pro les respectively. For the rst time, we simultaneously t the observational data from SOHO and STEREO using a multivariate minimization algorithm. The streamer plasma sheet contains a number of brighter and darker ray-like structures with the density contrast up to about a factor 3 between them. The densities derived using polarized and unpolarized data are similar. We demonstrate that our model corresponds well to the observations.
