[16.11] Comparison of Coronal Data between the SPARTAN 201/WLC, SOHO/LASCO, and the MARK 3 Coronagraph

T.A. Kucera (SM\&A), D. Wang (NRL/Interferometrics), A. Lecinski (HAO), D.A. Biesecker (SM\&A), R.R. Fisher (NASA/GSFC), S.E. Gibson (Univ. of Cambridge, UK), M. Guhathakurta (CUA)

We compare coronal data from three different coronagraphs operating during the flight of SPARTAN 201-5 on Nov 1-3, 1998. The SPARTAN 201/White Light Coronagraph provides reliable data from 1.5--4.0 solar radii, bridging a gap in the radial coverage between the Mark 3 Coronagraph (which has reliable data from 1.16--1.8 solar radii) and the SOHO/LASCO C2 (2.5--6 solar radii). We will compare the radial brightness profiles of different coronal features as seen by the three different instruments, comparing the apparent structures in total white-light and polarized brightness.
