Title Solar Wind 3D Reconstructions of the Whole Heliospheric Interval
Abstract 3D tomographic reconstructions of the inner heliosphere have been used for over a decade to visualise and investigate the structure of the solar wind and its various features such as transients and corotating structures. Interplanetary scintillation (IPS) observations of the solar wind have been carried out for a much longer period of time revealing information on the structure of the solar wind and the features within it. Here we present such 3D reconstructions using IPS observations from the Solar Terrestrial Environment Laboratory (STELab) and the Ootacamund (Ooty) Radio Telescope (ORT) of the Whole Heliospheric Interval (WHI) Carrington Rotation 2068. This is part of the world-wide IPS community's International Heliosphysical Year (IHY) collaboration. We show the structure of the inner heliosphere during this time and how our global reconstructions compare with deep-space spacecraft measurements such as those taken by Wind, ACE, STEREO, and Ulysses in terms of density and velocity.
