Title: Connecting the Sun and the solar wind: source regions of the fast wind observed in interplanetary space

Abstract: Highly sensitive radio occultation and white light measurements of path-integrated density have shown that the solar corona comprises three distinct morphological regions, streamer, quiet Sun, and polar coronal hole, which except for the streamer region, extend radially into interplanetary space from 1.15 R***s*** to at least 30 R***s***. The authors build on these results by comparing solar wind flow speeds observed at the same time as path-integrated density.
