  • A three-fluid model for the solar wind, with continuity, momentum, and energy equations for the three species protons, alpha particles, and electrons, including electron heat conduction and a parameterized coronal heat source, is used to study the behavior of the resulting proton and alpha fluxes as a function of coronal energy input and the proton-to-alpha density ratio at the coronal base. While in model solutions without alpha particles the proton flux is a strongly increasing function of… CONTINUE READING
