Table 1:

List of MC events.
\begin{displaymath}{\begin{tabular}{cc@{ }cr@{.}lr@{.}l}
S/C & $T...
...N & 10&0 $\pm$ 6.4 & 0&91 $\pm$ 0.23\\

The first column in Table 1 indicates the spacecraft (Helios 1 or Helios 2), $T_{\rm c}$ in the second column is the time for the observation of the MC center (or for the minimum approach distance). The MCs are separated in two groups: perturbed (P) and non-perturbed (N) by a fast SW stream. $\Delta V_x/(t_{\rm out}-t_{\rm in})$ is minus the fitted slope of the temporal velocity profile (see, Eq. (2)) and $\zeta $ is the non-dimensional expansion coefficient (Eq. (8)). $\Delta V_x/(t_{\rm out}-t_{\rm in})<0$ means observed compression of the MC. The average values and the standard deviations are given at the bottom.
