Abstract: We study the relationship between different wave phenomena associated with a coronal mass ejection (CME) observed on 05 Mar. 2000. EIT waves were observed in the images recorded by EIT at 195 Å. The white-light LASCO/C2 images show clear deflection and propagation of a kink along with the CME. Spectroscopic observations recorded by the UVCS reveals excessive line broadening in the two O VI lines (1032 and 1037 Å). Moreover very hot lines such as Si XII and Mg X were observed. Interestingly, the EIT wave, the streamer deflection and the intensity modulation along the slit were all propagating northeast. Spatial and temporal correlations show that the streamer deflection and spectral line broadening are highly likely to be due to a CME-driven shock wave and that the EIT wave is the signature of a CME-driven shock wave in the lower corona.
