Data Identification
Abstract: 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.
Purpose: To provide scientific data stewardship of solar-terrestrial datasets in compliance with NOAA Administrative Order (NAO) 212-12, "Management of Environmental and Geospatial Data and Information", dated 04 Nov 10. Scientific Data Stewardship includes the Archive, Access, and Assessment (AAA) of operational and related solar and space environmental datasets.
