Figure 7: Relationship between total mass flux and magnetic field line-starting latitude.

From: Full-Sun observations for identifying the source of the slow solar wind

Figure 7

Percentage of total mass flux as a function of magnetic field line-starting latitude (red line). Most of the mass flux (90%) comes from field lines that originate from below 40° latitude (marked by the vertical blue line on the right hand side). The vertical line on the left hand side indicates that most of this flux comes from field lines that originate above a starting latitude of ~11°.
