Title: On the predominance of the radial component of the magnetic field in the solar corona
Authors: Habbal, S. R.
Woo, R.
Arnaud, J.
Issue Date: 2002
Citation: Astrophysical journal
Abstract: In this paper, the polarized intensity measurements of the Fe XIII 10747 A line described by Arnaud are placed, for the first time, in the context of the corresponding pB images from the HAO Mauna Loa MkIII K-Coronameter, which first became available in 1980. It is shown how the predominance of the radial direction of the coronal magnetic field at solar maximum is consistent with radially expanding magnetic field lines coexisting with the large-scale structures associated with streamers.
