Abstract. Collimated ejections of plasma called "coronal hole jets" are commonly observed in polar coronal holes. However, such coronal jets are not only a specific features of polar coronal holes but they can also be found in coronal holes appearing at lower heliographic latitudes. In this paper we present some observations of "equatorial coronal hole jets" made up with data provided by the STEREO/SECCHI instruments during a period comprising March 2007 and December 2007. The jet events are…

Determination of temperature maps of EUV coronal hole jets
Abstract Coronal hole jets are fast ejections of plasma occurring within coronal holes, observed at Extreme-UltraViolet (EUV) and X-ray wavelengths. Recent observations of jets by the STEREO and
An equatorial coronal-hole jet is analyzed, in which the magnetic-field structure was consistent with the embedded-bipole topology that was identified and modeled previously as an origin of coronal jets, strongly supporting the hypothesis that the breakout model can explain solar eruptions on a wide range of scales.
Multiwavelength Study of Equatorial Coronal-hole Jets
Jets (transient/collimated plasma ejections) occur frequently throughout the solar corona and contribute mass/energy to the corona and solar wind. By combining numerical simulations and
Reconnection-Driven Coronal-Hole Jets with Gravity and Solar Wind
Coronal-hole jets occur ubiquitously in solar coronal holes, at EUV and X-ray bright points associated with intrusions of minority magnetic polarity. The embedded-bipole model for these jets posits
Observational and model analysis of a two-ribbon flare possibly induced by a neighbouring blowout jet
In this paper, we present unique observations of a blowout coronal jet that possibly triggered a two-ribbon confined C1.2 flare in a bipolar solar active region NOAA 12615 on 2016 December 5. The jet
Solar Coronal Jets: Observations, Theory, and Modeling
Coronal jets represent important manifestations of ubiquitous solar transients, which may be the source of significant mass and energy input to the upper solar atmosphere and the solar wind and could provide critical insight for understanding the larger, more complex drivers of the solar activity.
Coronal-jet-producing Minifilament Eruptions as a Possible Source of Parker Solar Probe Switchbacks
The Parker Solar Probe (PSP) has observed copious rapid magnetic field direction changes in the near-Sun solar wind. These features have been called "switchbacks," and their origin is a mystery. But
Blowout jets and impulsive eruptive flares in a bald-patch topology
Context. A subclass of broad extreme ultraviolet (EUV) and X-ray jets, called blowout jets, have become a topic of research since they could be the link between standard collimated jets and coronal

The Birth of a Jet-driven Twin CME and Its Deflection from Remote Magnetic Fields
We report the formation of a complicated coronal mass ejection (CME) on 2015 August 23 by using the high temporal and high spatial resolution multi-wavelength observations taken by the Solar Dynamic


Jets in Coronal Holes: Hinode Observations and Three-dimensional Computer Modeling
Recent observations of coronal hole areas with the XRT and EIS instruments on board the Hinode satellite have shown with unprecedented detail the launching of fast, hot jets away from the solar
Characteristics of EUV Coronal Jets Observed with STEREO/SECCHI
In this paper we present the first comprehensive statistical study of EUV coronal jets observed with the SECCHI (Sun Earth Connection Coronal and Heliospheric Investigation) imaging suites of the two
High-resolution Observations of Plasma Jets in the Solar Corona
We present recent observations of coronal jets, made by TRACE and Yohkoh/SXT on 28 May and 19 August 1998. The high spatial resolution of TRACE enables us to see in detail the process of material
Velocity Structure of Jets in a Coronal Hole
The velocity structures of jets in a coronal hole have been derived for the first time. Hinode observations revealed the existence of many bright points in coronal holes. They are loop-shaped and
A Study of Polar Jet Parameters Based on Hinode XRT Observations
Hinode/SOHO campaign 7197 is the most extensive study of polar jet formation and evolution from within both the north and south polar coronal holes so far. For the first time, this study showed that
We propose a model for the jetting activity that is commonly observed in the Sun's corona, especially in the open-field regions of polar coronal holes. Magnetic reconnection is the process driving
Evidence for polar jets as precursors of polar plume formation
Observations from the Hinode/XRT telescope and STEREO/SECCHI/EUVI are utilized to study polar coronal jets and plumes. The study focuses on the temporal evolution of both structures and their
Evidence of Magnetic Reconnection along Coronal Hole Boundaries
The present study reveals for the first time the existence of bidirectional jets, which are a signature of magnetic reconnection, occurring along coronal hole boundaries. The Solar Ultraviolet
Evidence for Alfvén Waves in Solar X-ray Jets
Hinode observations of polar coronal holes reveal that x-ray jets have two distinct velocities: one near the Alfvén speed (∼800 kilometer per second) and another near the sound speed (200 kilometers per second).
