Fig. 7


Variation of the sheath size, Ssh, along: a) the MC axis (| λMC |); b) across the MC axis (| pMC |); and c) along the shock (λshock). The drawing convention and added parameters are the same as in Fig. 6. Panels a) and b) are for the MCs of Lepping’s list, and panel c) shows the shocks studied by Wang et al. (2010). Both sets were associated with the ICMEs studied by Richardson & Cane (2010). The panels show that there is no global dependence on Ssh along and across the flux rope or along the shock.
