Abstract

SECIS observations of the June 2001 total solar eclipse were taken using an Fe xiv 5303 Å filter. Existing software was modified and new code was developed for the reduction and analysis of these data. The observations, data reduction, study of the atmospheric and instrumental effects, together with some preliminary results are discussed. Emphasis is given to the techniques used for the automated alignment of the 8000 images, the software developed for the automated detection of intensity oscillations using wavelet analysis and the application of the Monte Carlo randomisation test as a means of checking the reliability of those detections. In line with findings from the 1999 SECIS total eclipse observations, intensity oscillations with periods in the range of 7-8 s, lying outside coronal loops were also detected.
