Observations of the polar region of the Sun are critically important for understanding the solar dynamo and the acceleration of solar wind. We carried out precise magnetic observations on both the north polar region and the quiet Sun at the east limb with the spectropolarimeter of the Solar Optical Telescope aboard Hinode to characterize the polar region with respect to the quiet Sun. The average area and the total magnetic flux of the kilo-Gauss magnetic concentrations in the polar region… 
Magnetic topology of the north solar pole
The magnetism at the poles is similar to that of the quiet Sun in the sense that no active regions are present there. However, the polar quiet Sun is somewhat different from that at the activity belt
VECTOR MAGNETIC FIELDS OF A SOLAR POLAR REGION
We study the vector magnetic fields of a solar polar region (PR) based on Solar Optical Telescope/Spectro-Polarimeter measurements. To better understand the polar magnetic properties, we compare the
POLAR FIELD REVERSAL OBSERVATIONS WITH HINODE
We have been monitoring yearly variation in the Sun's polar magnetic fields with the Solar Optical Telescope aboard Hinode to record their evolution and expected reversal near the solar maximum. All
Photospheric magnetic topology of a north polar region
Aims. We aim to characterise the magnetism of a large fraction of the north polar region close to a maximum of activity, when the polar regions are reversing their dominant polarity. Methods. We make
The magnetic fine structure of the Sun’s polar region as revealed by Sunrise
Context. Polar magnetic fields play a key role in the solar magnetic cycle and they are the source of a significant portion of the interplanetary magnetic field. However, observations of the poles
The magnetic field in the solar atmosphere
This publication provides an overview of magnetic fields in the solar atmosphere with the focus lying on the corona. The solar magnetic field couples the solar interior with the visible surface of
North–South Asymmetry in the Distribution of Solar Background Magnetic Field
The aim of this article is to investigate how the background magnetic field of the Sun behaves in different hemispheres. We used SOHO/MDI data obtained during a period of eight years from 2003 to
THE DISTRIBUTION OF QUIET-SUN MAGNETIC FIELDS AT DIFFERENT HELIOCENTRIC ANGLES
This paper presents results from the analysis of high signal-to-noise ratio spectropolarimetric data taken at four heliocentric angles in quiet-Sun internetwork regions with the Hinode satellite.
Measurements of Photospheric and Chromospheric Magnetic Fields
The Sun is replete with magnetic fields, with sunspots, pores and plage regions being their most prominent representatives on the solar surface. But even far away from these active regions, magnetic
Are Internetwork Magnetic Fields in the Solar Photosphere Horizontal or Vertical
Using many observations obtained during 2007 with the Spectro-Polarimeter of the Hinode Solar Optical Telescope, we explore the angular distribution of magnetic fields in the quiet internetwork
