Simultaneous observations of the slow solar wind o€ the southeast limb of the Sun were made in May 1999 using optical measurements from the C2 and C3 LASCO coronagraphs on board the SOHO spacecraft and radio-scattering measurements from the MERLIN and EISCAT facilities. The observations show the slow solar wind accelerating outwards from 4.5 solar radii (R), reaching a ®nal velocity of 200±300 km s)1 by 25± 30 R. The acceleration pro®le indicated by these results is more gentle than the average… CONTINUE READING
