Figure 5

We have overlaid magnetic field lines from our PFSS calculation on the full-Sun intensity images in Fig. 1 that cover a broad range of temperatures from 0.45 to 2.8 MK. The solid field lines are open and the dotted field lines are closed. Only a small subset of the total number of field lines we computed are shown. The extrapolations appear different because the subset was chosen randomly for each intensity image. We have drawn relatively more open-field lines for emphasis.
