    Description: The reported results are mainly based on data obtained during the first part of the Helios-1 mission. The sun was very quiet during the considered period. The data are, therefore, representative for comparatively stationary conditions in the solar corona. Data obtained concerning the protons were evaluated by means of a special computer routine. The significance of the data is discussed, taking into account the status of the corona and the interplanetary plasma during the considered part of the Helios-1 mission, fast stream structures in the region between 0.3 and 1 AU, radial gradients of fast and slow solar wind, and the separation of proton double streams and alpha-particles. Attention is also given to the 'strahl' in the electron distribution, differences between fast streams and slow plasma on the basis of the observed electron distributions, and radial gradients in the case of solar wind electron parameters.

    Description: Observational evidence favoring the local regulation of solar-wind heat flux at 1 AU is reviewed, and four months of IMP 6 plasma and magnetic-field data are merged and analyzed in order to investigate what might be regulating the heat flux. A statistical analysis of the data shows that the solar-wind Alfven speed is probably regulating the heat flux locally at 1 AU and that the Alfven speed, the velocity difference between the peak of low-energy electrons and the bulk plasma velocity, and the solar-wind velocity component projected along the local spiral angle are statistically well correlated for Alfven speeds not exceeding about 70 km/s. A time-series analysis of the data indicates that only the Alfven speed and the velocity difference between the peak of low-energy electrons and the bulk plasma velocity are well correlated both qualitatively and quantitatively on a microscopic time scale. It is strongly suggested that, at times, the solar-wind heat flux is locally regulated by the magnitude of the Alfven speed at 1 AU. Uncertainties in the results are discussed.
