Abstract

We have identified 20 coronal mass ejections, or CMEs, in the solar wind in the Ulysses data obtained between S30° and S75° during the second polar orbit. Unlike CME-driven disturbances observed at high latitudes during Ulysses’ first polar orbit, these disturbances had plasma and magnetic field characteristics similar to those observed in the ecliptic plane near 1 AU when one allows for evolution with heliocentric distance. Here we provide a brief overview of CME observations at high latitudes both close to and far from the Sun, with emphasis on the recent Ulysses measurements on the rising portion of solar cycle 23.
