Brandt, J.C., W.C. Livingston, and D.E. Trumbo, 1967: Temperature of the solar corona from intensity gradients measured during the May 30, 1965 total eclipse. Publ. Astron. Soc. Pacific, 79, 140-151, doi:10.1086/128455.

A description is given of an experiment which consists of point-wise threecolor photoelectric photometry of the solar corona. Persistent cloudy conditions before eclipse as well as thin clouds during the eclipse prevented attainment of the full original experimental objectives. However, the experimental techniques appeared to be entirely satisfactory, and the data obtained permit the determination of logarithmic intensity gradients which give a fairly reliable estimate for the temperature of the corona. T = 1.6×106°K and T = 1.9×106°K are found for the equatorial region with an inhomogeneous model and a mean atomic weight of 0.608 and 0.692, respectively, at a heliocentric distance of 1.3 R.
