CoMP Coronal Intensity

The COronal Multi-channel Polarimeter (CoMP) observes the Fe-XIII emission line at 1074.7 nm to measure the coronal magnetic field and obtain plasma density and motion in the low corona from ~1.03 to 1.5 solar radii.

K-Cor White Light Corona

Designed to study the formation and dynamics of coronal mass ejections and the evolution of the density structure of the low corona, K-Cor records the polarization brightness (pB).

GET K-COR DATA

K-Cor (radially graded filter)

K-Cor image with a normalized radially graded filter (nrgf) to maximize image contrast, especially in the outer field.

These data are ideal for measuring positions of coronal structures such as CMEs and helmet streamers.
