Abstract: AbstractWe present a new technique to study joint observations of EUV spectral line intensities and in situ charge states of the fast solar wind. We solve the time-dependent equation for ionization and recombination for a chosen element and calculate the charge state evolution along the open magnetic fields for elements such as C, O, Ne, Mg, Si and Fe. Comparing predicted spectral lines intensities above the limb and in situ charge states to observations from SOHO/SUMER and Ulysses/SWICS, we test how well the …
