Solar wind protons: Three-dimensional velocity distributions and derived plasma parameters measured between 0.3 and 1 AU
A survey of solar wind three-dimensional proton velocity distributions as measured by the Helios solar probes between 0.3 and 1 AU is presented. A variety of nonthermal features like temperatureExpand

Radial evolution of the electron distribution functions in the fast solar wind between 0.3 and 1.5 AU
[1] Observed electron distribution functions of the solar wind permanently exhibit three different components: a thermal core and a suprathermal halo, which are always present at all pitch angles,Expand

Wave heating and acceleration of solar wind ions by cyclotron resonance
In order to explain the ion temperature anisotropies and differential speeds, as observed in solar wind high-speed streams, a fluid type model is presented that takes into account ion heating andExpand

Slow-mode standing waves observed by SUMER in hot coronal loops
We report the first detection of postflare loop oscillations seen in both Doppler shift and intensity. The observations were recorded in an Fe xix line by the SUMER spectrometer on SOHO in the coronaExpand

Radial evolution of nonthermal electron populations in the low‐latitude solar wind: Helios, Cluster, and Ulysses Observations
[1] We have performed a statistical study of a substantial amount of solar wind electron velocity distribution functions (eVDFs). In our data set, we combine measurements acquired onboard threeExpand
