Abstract

The isothermal solar wind equations are solved for the case where the coronal conditions vary with latitude. It is found that the solutions are not uniquely determined by the base density but require knowledge of the injection angle of the fluid. Even for the case of spherically symmetric density at the corona, the solutions are not unique and form a one parameter set, but the latitude variation decreases rapidly with increasing heliocentric distance.
