Context. The solar atmosphere contains a wide variety of transient features, here, we discuss data relating to one such feature.
Aims. To explore via simultaneous spectral and imaging data the nature of high-velocity flow events in the solar transition region.
Methods. High spectral and temporal resolution data from SUMER/SoHO plus high resolution images from TRACE are used.
Results. In the transient feature discussed, we see a factor of two enhancement in N V 1238, coupled with a factor of two decrease in O V 629
visible over 3 4 along the slit. Furthermore, the O V line shows a secondary component with a down-flow of 75 km s-1
, while the N V line
