Using HINODE/EIS to Confirm a Seismologically Inferred Coronal Temperature

  title={Using HINODE/EIS to Confirm a Seismologically Inferred Coronal Temperature},
  author={M. Marsh and R. Walsh},
The Extreme-Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrometer on board the HINODE satellite is used to examine the loop system described in Marsh et al. (2009) by applying spectroscopic diagnostic methods. A simple isothermal mapping algorithm is applied to determine where the assumption of isothermal plasma may be valid, and the emission measure locii technique is used to determine the temperature profile along the base of the loop system. It is found that, along the base, the loop has a uniform temperature… Expand
