- Interchange reconnection between open and closed field lines and its role in slow wind generation (coronal hole boundaries and intermediate areas of quiet Sun). To be studied for coronal holes in different locations and at different parts of the orbit (high latitude, perihelion).
(To be merged with 22.214.171.124 after the LTP planning exercise during SOWG#8.)

- SoloHI: Contribute (mode: synoptic+shock+turbulence), no min. obs time, all distances.
- EUI, EUI synoptic mode (S). FSI 304, long duration, intermediate cadence 10 min.
- Target:Coronal holes, coronal hole boundaries, quiet Sun, active regions
- Observing mode: Composition mapping (with possibility to measure Doppler velocities) and possible mosaic for connectivity
Slit: 6” or 30” (for faster maps which the max FOV)
- Exposure time/cadence and number of X positions: 180 s, X=160 or X=32
- Field of View: 16’×11’ (with the 6” slit), 16’×14’ (with the 30” slit)
- Number of repetitions of the study: 2 (using the 6” slit) or 10 (using the 30” slit)
- Observation time: 16 hours (8 hours per study using the 6” slit or 1.6 hours per study using the 30” slit)
- Key SPICE lines to be included: Ne VIII 770 Å, Ne VIII 780 Å, Mg IX 706 Å, O II 718 Å, O IV 787 Å, O V 760.4 Å, O V 761 Å, O VI 1032 Å, O VI 1037 Å, Ne VI 999 Å, Ne VI 1010 Å, Mg VIII 772 Å, Mg VIII 782 Å, C III 977 Å, Fe III 1017 Å - 2 profiles and 13 intensities or 4 profiles and 11 intensities (maximum of 15)
- Observing window preference: High and low latitude, perihelion
- Other instruments: EUI, PHI, SoloHI
- Comments: The choice of lines, and also the number of intensities and profiles, is flexible, although the sum of the intensities and profiles is constrained to a maximum (e.g 15 for composition mapping). While varying the number of intensities and profiles, within the maximum, has no effect on the duration of the study, it will have an effect on the telemetry.
