[17.07] Coronal Loop Differential Emission Measures from TRACE and CDS Observations

P. S. Hamilton, E. E. DeLuca, K. Johnson (CfA)

There has been much recent discussion about the nature of active region coronal loops detected by the Transition Region and Coronal Explorer (TRACE) observations. Using several sets of co-aligned CDS and TRACE observations we perform a DEM analysis on both loop and nearby background plasma. We find that these loops contain material at 105.9 K to 106.2 K. Finally we examine how this information can be used to constrain the input parameters to time-dependent hydrodynamic models of these loops.

TRACE is supported by contract NAS5-38099 from NASA to LMATC.
