    • A theoretical study of the coupling between minor ions and protons in the solar transition region 

      Byhring, Hanne Sigrun (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2007-06-01)
      We have used a numerical model to calculate the flow velocities of six minor ion species, using two different background models for the fast solar wind, one with a slow expansion, and one with a very rapidly expanding geometry. By comparing the flow velocity of the minor ions and the protons, we have investigated the degree of coupling between minor ions and the background solar wind in the solar ...
