Abstract:Fundamental advances in the physics of the solar corona from the 1960's to the present time are briefly reviewed. Progress in coronal investigations has mainly been associated with major space missions, which have discovered such new phenomena as coronal holes and coronal mass ejections, and have enabled detailed study of coronal arch systems. The role of magnetic fields on various scales in quasi-steady-state phenomena is discussed for various phases of the solar activity cycle.
