Figure 8

The sources are overlaid on an AIA 193 Å composite intensity image (blue), which we used to correctly coalign and place the EIS raster data in the mosaic. It shows all regions where coronal plasma is outflowing on open-field lines that reach close to the ecliptic plane. These are smoothed with a Gaussian filter to emphasize areas where there is a larger concentration of sources (red). The map is then filtered to identify weaker concentrations, and these are merged on to the image in green. The AIA images have been treated with an unsharp mask to bring out the details.
