[56.03] The Cinderella Loop Project

J. O'Connor, T. Coyle, J. Douglass, J.T. Schmelz (University of Memphis)

On 1999 Nov 6 at 02:30 UT, a solar loop (dubbed Cinderella) on the northeast limb was simultaneously observed by TRACE, EIT on SOHO, and SXT on Yohkoh. This project investigates differences among the data sets from the three instruments. For example, EIT and TRACE have nearly identical temperature responses, but does the high resolution TRACE imager (0.5 arcsec pixels) produce results that match those from the lower resolution EIT imager (2.6 arcsec pixels)? Furthermore, EIT and SXT have similar spatial resolutions, but their temperature responses are much farther apart. Do these two instruments observe the same structures within the loop, and if so, how do their temperature and emissions measures compare? What are the effects of background subtraction on all three data sets? This presentation will address these questions. Solar physics research at the University of Memphis is supported by NASA grants NAG5-9783 and NAG5-12096.
