Title Transient Structure in the Slow Solar Wind
Abstract Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory (STEREO) Heliospheric Imager (HI) observations of the slow solar wind commonly show a high degree of small-scale structure. High-cadence analyses of two-station radio scintillation observations (IPS) from the EISCAT facility also show evidence of rapid variation in outflow speed, scintillation level, and magnetic-field orientation in the slow wind. These are on spatial scales smaller than the structures seen by the HIs. We compare observations of IPS of solar-wind outflow speed and field orientation made at times of good HI coverage with HI white-light intensity levels in order to determine whether the IPS variations are embedded within larger transients observed by the HIs.
