We compare the small-scale features visible in the Ne viii Doppler-shift map of an equatorial coronal hole (CH) as observed by SUMER with the small-scale structures of the magnetic field as constructed from a simultaneous photospheric magnetogram by a potential magnetic-field extrapolation. The combined data set is analysed with respect to the small-scale flows of coronal matter, which means that the Ne viii Doppler-shift used as tracer of the plasma flow is investigated in close connection with the ambient magnetic field. Some small closed-field regions in this largely open CH are also found in the coronal volume considered. The Doppler-shift patterns are found to be clearly linked with the field topology.
Key words: Sun: corona / Sun: magnetic field / Sun: UV radiation / Sun: Doppler shifts
