A survey of current coronal visible line identifications

  • William J. Wagner
  • Lewis L. House


A literature search has been made pertaining to the identifications of coronal visible lines. Of over one hundred lines reported seen at eclipses, about forty identifications are widely quoted. Close scrutiny of the literature, however, reveals that only twenty of these identifications are not disputed by one or more authors.
