SOLAR DATABASES FOR GLOBAL CHANGE MODELS ABSTRACT
- I posted the SOLAR DATABASES FOR GLOBAL CHANGE MODELS ABSTRACT in full to P/C articles. There is a lot of information contained therewithin as well as some handy links regarding available data. Coincedentially, Dr. Peter Foukal is also mentioned, see excerpt below.
The total SOLAR_IRRADIANCE <http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/stp/SOLAR/ftpsolarirradiance.html> , (Web Page for further Information) <http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/stp/SOLAR/IRRADIANCE/irrad.html> data cover the satellite observing time period 1978 to present and include data from Nimbus, SMM, NOAA, ERBS and UARS. Earlier proxy data on-line include the Greenwich sunspot area database (1876 to present) for sunspot blocking data and McMath Calcium II K-line plage data (1942-1987) for brightness data. Most of these Calcium data were reduced by Dr. Helen Dodson Prince. A digital database of calcium plage imagery from Mt. Wilson will soon be available from Dr. Peter Foukal. These include not only the active plage areas, but also the contribution from the plage network.
