Solar Indices Bulletin

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

Solar Indices Bulletin is a prompt monthly information product that is distributed within two weeks after the observation month closes. For the month just ended, this 2-page circular tabulates daily values of sunspot numbers and 10.7 cm solar radio flux observed at Penticton (previously at Ottawa); flux measurements at eight other wavelengths are included. Page 2 of the Bulletin gives a table of smoothed monthly mean sunspot numbers for the current solar cycle--a table that begins with smoothed observed values for each month and ends with predictions.
