Plasma temperature T and numeric density n as a function of height during the preparatory thermal relaxation phase at two different positions above the surface. Solid lines correspond to the initial state. Dotted, dashed, and dot-dashed lines represent the temporal evolution of these quantities during the thermal relaxation phase at equally spaced time intervals after the initial state. The two top panels correspond to the n and T profiles along a vertical line right above the loop footpoints, where the magnetic field is mostly vertical. The two bottom panels show the same quantities along a vertical line that crosses the centre of the loop, where the magnetic field is mostly horizontal.
