Solar Orbiter science nuggets (October releases)

It is our pleasure to share new Solar Orbiter science nuggets (October releases):

SO Nugget #17 “Unusually long path length for a nearly scatter-free solar particle event observed by Solar Orbiter at 0.43 au” (R.F. Wimmer-Schweingruber, L. Berger, A. Kollhoff, P. Kühl, B. Heber, et al.)

SO Nugget #18 “Fleeting small-scale surface magnetic fields build the quiet-Sun corona” (L. P. Chitta, S. K. Solanki, J. C. del Toro Iniesta, J. Woch et al.)

SO Nugget #19 “Observations of mini coronal dimmings caused by small-scale eruptions in the quiet Sun” (R. Wang, Y. D. Liu, X. Zhao, & H. Hu)

As a reminder, new nuggets will be added on a regular basis, based on input from the entire solar physics community. If you are working on Solar Orbiter data and would like your results to be featured, please contact Yannis Zouganelis ( and Miho Janvier (
