The coronal electron temperature was determined for the first time from the shape of weak depressions at 3900A and 4300Aai in the continuous coronal spectra.It was found that the coronal streamer has overall temperatures of about 1.5–1.7 MK, while the coronal hole has evidently lower temperature of 0.9–1.1 MK.No significant height variation of the temperature was found in the streamer, while the coronal hole shows evidence of increasing temperature with height. An acceleration of the expanding… 
Measurement of the Coronal Electron Temperature at the Total Solar Eclipse On 3rd Nov. 1994
The continuous coronal spectrum is created by Thomson scattering of the photospheric radiation by free electrons in the corona. Because of the large thermal motions of the coronal electrons, most
The Effects of Streamers on the Shape of the K-Coronal Spectrum
We conducted an experiment in conjunction with the total solar eclipse of 21 June 2001 in Lusaka, Zambia, to obtain the K-coronal spectrum simultaneously from multiple locations on the solar corona.
Electron-Temperature Maps of the Low Solar Corona: ISCORE Results from the Total Solar Eclipse of 29 March 2006 in Libya
We conducted an experiment in conjunction with the total solar eclipse of 29 March 2006 in Libya that measured the coronal intensity through two filters centered at 3850 Å and 4100 Å with bandwidths
Electron temperature maps of the low solar corona: ISCORE results from the total solar eclipse of 1 August 2008 in China
We conducted an experiment in conjunction with the total solar eclipse of 1 August 2008 in China to determine the thermal electron temperature in the low solar corona close to the solar limb. The
Evaluating Uncertainties in Coronal Electron Temperature and Radial Speed Measurements Using a Simulation of the Bastille Day Eruption
Obtaining reliable measurements of plasma parameters in the Sun’s corona remains an important challenge for solar physics. We previously presented a method for producing maps of electron temperature
Electron Temperature and Speed Measurements in the Low Solar Corona: Results From the 2001 June Eclipse
We present measurements of electron temperature and bulk flow speed low in the solar corona derived from white-light spectra obtained during the total solar eclipse of 2001 June 21. Observations were
MACS for Global measurement of the Solar wind velocity and the Thermal electron temperature during the Total solar eclipse on 11 August 1999
MACS for Multi-Aperture Coronal Spectrometer is a fiber-optic-based spectrograph designed and used to perform global measurement of the solar wind velocity and the thermal electron temperature of the
Evaluating the Uncertainties in the Electron Temperature and Radial Speed Measurements Using White Light Corona Eclipse Observations
We examine the uncertainties in two plasma parameters from their true values in a simulated asymmetric corona. We use the Corona Heliosphere (CORHEL) and Magnetohydrodynamics Around the Sphere (MAS)
Solar eclipses as an astrophysical laboratory
TLDR
A new generation of ground-based eclipse observations reaches spatial, temporal and spectral-resolution domains that are inaccessible from space and therefore complement satellite studies.
The Color of Solar Corona Structures
Abstract Two-dimensional distributions of the relative color index ( RCI ) of the continuous corona spectrum of 1991 and 2006 reveal that the energy distributions in the continuums of the corona and
