Volker Bothmer acknowledges support of the projects CGAUSS (Coronagraphic German And US SolarProbePlus Survey) for the
NASA Solar Probe Plus mission
and Stereo/Corona for the
NASA STEREO mission
by the German Bundesministerium for Bildung und Forschung
through the deutsche Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt e.V. (DLR, German Space Agency) under grants 50OL1201 and 50 °C 0904.
Stereo/Corona is a science and hardware contribution, carried out in collaboration with the Max-Planck-Institute for Solar
System Research in Katlenburg-Lindau and the University of Kiel,
to the optical image package SECCHI, developed for the NASA STEREO mission.
CGAUSS is a science and hardware contribution to the WISPR (Wide-field Imager for Solar PRobe) imager for the NASA Solar Probe
The research studies carried out by Eckhard Bosman in the framework of his Ph.D. thesis have received funding from the DLR
Stereo/Corona project and the EU FP7 SOTERIA
projects. European Union's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under
the grant agreement No 263506 (AFFECTS project, www.affects-fp7.eu
). The research leading
to these results has received funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under the grant
agreement No 218816 (SOTERIA project, www.soteria-space.eu
The STEREO/SECCHI data used for this study are prepared by an international consortium of NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (USA),
Lockheed Martin Solar and Astrophysics Lab (USA), Naval Research Laboratory (USA), Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (UK), University
of Birmingham (UK), Max-Planck-Institut für Sonnensystemforschung (Germany), Institut d'Optique Theorique et Appliquee (France),
Institut d'Astrophysique Spatiale (France) and Centre Spatiale de Liege (Belgium). The NRL effort was supported by NASA, the USAF
Space Test Program and the Office of Naval Research. The work of Angelos Vourlidas and Russell A. Howard is supported by NASA contract
S-136361-Y to the Naval Research Laboratory. Data from the SOHO/MDI instrument are courtesy of the SOHO/MDI consortium. The SOHO/MDI
data are produced by an international consortium of the Naval Research Laboratory (USA), Max-Planck-Institut für Aeronomie
(Germany), Laboratoire d'Astronomie (France) and the University of Birmingham (UK). SOHO is an international project of collaboration
between ESA and NASA.
We are grateful to NRL, ESA and NASA for the collaborations in this research. We thank the NOAA-SWPC
(National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Space Weather Prediction Center) for the collaboration in the framework of AFFECTS.
