Background Data Sources


1) GOES X-ray Flux

  • The 2s cadence X-ray flux received by GOES/XRS is used as the background data in the project. The fluxes in two channels (1-8 A and 0.5-4 A) are displayed.
  • Currently the events are displayed in front of this data, which helps to find reflection of different events in soft X-ray activity of the sun.
  • Additionally, it is possible to display Temperature and Emission measure graphs calculated from GOES data in the single-temperature approximation.


2) SDO/EVE ESP Data

  • For better presentation of the data, there is a 10-second averaging applied to the ESP/EVE curves.
  • The curves are available for the whole instrument operational period and are updated daily.


3) Nobeyama Polarimeter Light Curves

ftp://solar-pub.nao.ac.jp/pub/nsro/norp/xdr/

Available for: January, 2010 - current

  • The Nobeyama polarimeter data, as well as ESP/EVE data, are averaged every 10 seconds.
  • The curves are available starting from January 01 2010 and are updated daily.

Databases of Events


1) GOES flare list

  • The GOES daily flare lists represent the events registered by GOES satellite. Currently only X-Ray activity events are considered.
  • It is possible to search for GOES events based on their physical characteristics, as Temperature and Emission Measure in single-temperature approximation, and their class.


2) HEK register flare list

https://www.lmsal.com/isolsearch

Available for: February, 2010 - current

  • The HEK register was developed to help with browsing the SDO/AIA telescope data. The catalog contains reports about the activities in different segments of the solar disk.
  • Users can search based on peak flux and the AIA channel of the observed events.


3) RHESSI flare list

http://hesperia.gsfc.nasa.gov/hessidata/dbase/

Available for: January, 2002 - current

  • The RHESSI monthly flare lists are based on observations of the X-ray counts / flux by the RHESSI satellite.
  • Currently RHESSI filters for event duration, peak counts and observed energy range are implemented.


4) Hinode Flare Catalog

http://st4a.stelab.nagoya-u.ac.jp/hinode_flare/

Available for: November 1, 2006 - July 31, 2016

  • Integration with the Hinode flare catalog allows users to check which GOES events were observed by Hinode satellite.
  • One can filter the events based on number of observational sets of Hinode instruments.


5) Fermi GBM solar flare catalog

https://hesperia.gsfc.nasa.gov/fermi/gbm/qlook/

Available for: November, 2008 - current

  • This is the list of the flares observed by the Fermi GBM in the 8 keV - 40 MeV energy range.
  • It includes duration of the observed flares and the number of counts during the flares.


6) Filament eruption catalog

http://aia.cfa.harvard.edu/filament/

Available for: April 24, 2010 - October 19, 2014

  • Integration with the Filament Eruption catalog allows to select events with the filaments observed nearby.
  • It is possible to tune spatial and temporal overlapping of filaments, and make a selection based on a variety of characteristics.


7) Konus-WIND flare catalog

http://www.ioffe.ru/LEA/Solar/index.html

Available for: January 1, 2002 - July 23, 2016

  • Last sync was made on August, 29th, 2016.
  • Integration with the catalog of flares observed by Konus-WIND satellite.


8) OVSA flare catalog

http://www.ovsa.njit.edu/data/

Available for: January 1, 2002 - December 31, 2003

  • This catalog includes events observed by Owens Valley Solar Array.


9) CACTus CME catalog

http://sidc.oma.be/cactus/

Available for: January 1, 2002 - current

  • CACTus is the autonomous detection system for Coronal Mass Ejections (CME) in image sequences from LASCO, reporting several CME parameters.

Coverage Check


1) IRIS

http://iris.lmsal.com/search/

Available for: July 18, 2013 - current

  • It is now possible to check the potential event coverage by IRIS.
  • One can apply a variety of filters and select observational modes to find events of interest.


2) SDO/EVE ESP Data

  • For better presentation of the data, there is a 10-second averaging applied to the ESP/EVE curves.
  • The curves are available for the whole instrument operational period and are updated daily.


2) Nobeyama Polarimeter

ftp://solar-pub.nao.ac.jp/pub/nsro/norp/xdr/

Available for: January, 2010 - current

  • Check of NoRP instrument coverage of the event time period.
