Abstract: High-resolution images of the corona obtained during the total solar eclipse on 11th July, 1991 were carefully analyzed to derive the electron densities along the loops of the green(530.3 nm) and red(637.4 nm) emission lines. We found no difference more than a factor of 2 between the averaged densities of the green and the red line loops at corresponding heights. Most of the analyzed loops were found to be approximately in hydrostatic equilibrium.
