Abstract. We examine long spectral time series of inter­plume lanes observed on the 14th and 15th March 2000
with the Coronal Diagnostic Spectrometer (CDS) on­board SoHO. The observations were obtained in lines over
a wide temperature range, from the chromosphere to the corona. The statistical significance of the oscillations
was estimated by using a randomisation method. Our observations indicate the presence of compressional waves
with periods of 20--50 min or longer, both o#­limb and on­disk and up to 70 min further out to at least 25 arcsec
o#­limb. To our knowledge this is the first time that long period oscillations in the inter­plume regions close to the
