[10.11] An Hour in the Life of Coronal Loops

J. W. Cirtain, J. T. Scott, P. C. H. Martens (Montana State University), H. D. Winter (Monatna State University)

Application of a new physics-based background subtraction method has allowed for investigation of the physical properties of coronal loops with unprecedented accuracy. We determine the temperature, emission measure, and pressure along multiple EUV coronal loops as a function of time and space, as well as their cross-section. With these measures of physical observables we have calculated the rate of change of pressure for the loops.
