The effect of the Plume/Interplume Lane (PIPL) structure of the solar North Polar Coronal Hole (NPCH) on the ion-cyclotron resonance (ICR) process is investigated. The ICR process in the interplume lanes is much more effective than in the plumes, agreeing with the observations which show the source of fast solar wind is interplume lanes.
