Large scale structure of the solar corona in the declining phase of the solar cycle

Session 1: The Sun and Corona


Maps of the corona, obtained at meter wavelengths with the Nançay Radioheliograph (France), are used to study, on the disk, the radio counterpart of the coronal plasma sheet observed in K-corona on the limb. We study here the evolution of the coronal plasma sheet from the maximum of the activity cycle in 1980 to the minimum in 1986 and identify some of its large scale structures.
