The Effect of Proton Temperature Anisotropy on the Solar Minimum Corona and Wind
Wang Y.-M. et al. (1998b) suggest that both the blobs and the plasma sheet represent closed-field material injected into the slow wind as a result of foot-point exchanges between the stretched helmet-streamer loops and neighboring open field lines.
