Introduction The subject of coronal holes and high-speed solar wind streams commanded much excitement during the early *8 when new instruments began to make routine observations of holes, and the wind obligingly became dominated by recurrent high-speed streams /l/.Cited by: 6.

Hence the high speed wind is stronger, (’more-blowy’!) at solar minimum. We are at a solar minimum phase today. A coronal hole is an area where magnetic field lines diverge (or in other words, the field is open). They are called ‘holes’ because within (x-ray wavelength) photographs they are darker than the surrounding areas.

[3] discovered coronal holes as the source of high speed streams in the ecliptic plane by ballistic backmapping of the radially propagating solar wind. Due to solar rotation fast streams interact with ambient slow solar wind to form sets of Corotating Interaction Regions (CIRs) and Rarefaction Regions (CRRs) (see sketch in [ 4 ]).

Superposed epoch analyses applied on solar-wind speed and neutron monitor intensity show that during the high-speed streams presumably coming from coronal holes the cosmic-ray intensity is.

Coronal holes are the darkest and least active regions of the Sun, as observed both on the solar disk and above the solar limb. Coronal holes are associated with rapidly expanding open magnetic fields and the acceleration of the high-speed solar wind.

The study of coronal holes and their associated high speed solar wind streams is important because they are the sources of space weather disturbances during minimum solar activity.

In the paper we have Coronal holes and high speed wind streams book the periodicity of high speed solar wind (HSSW) streams using the technique of power spectrum analysis.

Coronal holes and their associated high-speed wind streams are also responsible for a fraction of major geomagnetic storms at 1 AU. Corotating interaction regions (CIRs) form when fast and slow wind streams collide with one another, and the subsequent interaction between these structures and the Earth’s magnetosphere can give rise to long-lasting fluxes of energetic electrons.

By far, the strongest causal link between a specific type of coronal structure (measured via remote sensing) and a particular type of quasi-steady solar wind flow (measured in situ) is the connection between large coronal holes and high-speed streams (Wilcox, ; Krieger et al., ).

Coronal holes and their associated high-speed wind streams are also responsible for a fraction of major geomagnetic storms at 1 AU. Corotating interaction regions (CIRs) form when fast and slow wind streams collide with one another, and the subsequent interaction.

Coronal holes are areas on the Sun where the solar magnetic field extends up and out into interplanetary space, sending solar material speeding out in a high-speed stream of solar wind.

The solar wind is a stream of charged particles released from the upper atmosphere of the Sun, called the plasma mostly consists of electrons, protons and alpha particles with kinetic energy between and 10 composition of the solar wind plasma also includes a mixture of materials found in the solar plasma: trace amounts of heavy ions and atomic nuclei C, N, O, Ne, Mg, Si.

The solar wind speed is at a high ( km/s) over coronal holes and at a low ( km/s) over streamers. Coronal holes are regions where the corona is dark and streamers are large cap-like coronal structures with long pointed peaks that usually cover sunspots and active regions.

Abstract High-speed solar wind streams with asymptotic flow speeds of the order of km/sec have coronal holes as their primary source; the transient component, coronal mass ejections accounts for about 5 percent of solar mass loss.

Large coronal hole near the Sun’s north pole Such holes are the source of a high-speed wind of solar particles that streams off the Sun some three times faster than the solar wind elsewhere. But whereas coronal holes were immediately identified as the source of high-speed solar wind streams, at first coronal mass ejections were greeted only by a sense of wonder.

It took years of research to identify their signatures in the solar wind before the fastest ones could be identified with the well-known shock disturbances that cause the. The material constantly flowing outward is called the solar wind, which typically “blows” at around miles ( km) per second.

When a coronal hole is present, though, the wind speed can. @article{osti_, title = {Small Coronal Holes Near Active Regions as Sources of Slow Solar Wind}, author = {Wang, Y.-M., E-mail: @}, abstractNote = {We discuss the nature of the small areas of rapidly diverging, open magnetic flux that form in the strong unipolar fields at the peripheries of active regions (ARs), according to coronal extrapolations of photospheric.

Coronal holes are the source of a high-speed wind of solar particles that streams off the Sun around three times faster than the slower wind elsewhere. While it is unclear what causes coronal holes, they correlate to areas on the Sun where magnetic fields soar up and away, without looping back down to the surface, as they do elsewhere.

The discovery of coronal holes helped solve a long-outstanding puzzle. Long before Skylab, space probes such as Mariner 2 in detected fast streams in the solar wind, flowing not at km/s but perhaps at km/s or more.

These streams produce geomagnetic disturbances and changes in the level of cosmic ray intensity. The influence of two types of high speed solar wind streams- coronal-hole and solar-flare-associated.

High-speed solar wind streams come from areas on the sun known as coronal holes. These holes can form anywhere on the sun and usually, only when they are closer to the solar equator, do the winds they produce impact Earth. The sun rotates and releases energy in all frequencies of the electromagnetic spectrum.

The surface is turbulent with moving sunspots, solar flares and coronal mass ejections. High-speed streams of solar wind are emitted from coronal holes. The solar wind changes speed and carries with it magnetic clouds, interacting regions where high speed wind catches up with slow speed wind.

The solar wind speed is high ( km/s) over coronal holes and low ( km/s) over streamers. These high and low speed streams interact with each other and alternately pass by the Earth as the Sun rotates.

and D. Evans --High-Speed Streams, Coronal Mass Ejections, Recurrent Magnetic. Not only do Coronal Holes produce high-speed streams of Solar Wind which often manifest themselves as the Northern Lights but they also help in predicting Auroral activity too.

Essentially, there are two sources of the solar winds which cause the Aurora to appear in our skies; Coronal Mass Ejections and Coronal : Mark Mcfaul. The solar wind flows away of the Sun in all directions, not just from coronal holes, but the wind speed is high (up to km/s) over coronal holes and much lower ( to km/s) elsewhere.
