Space Climate 7 Meeting Abstract

Solar Radio Monitoring in Canada F10.7, Past, Present and Future

Ken F. Tapping (National Research Council)

The 10.7 cm solar radio flux (F10.7) values are spot measurements of the total solar radio emission at 10.7 cm wavelength made each day. Measurements began in 1947 and when, entirely fortuitously this wavelength was found to be an excellent stethoscope on solar magnetic activity, consequently they have been continued to the present day as a data service. This presentation will summarize the properties of F10.7, the current state of the programme and data applications, the development of new instrumentation, and where Canadian solar radio monitoring is headed.

Mode of presentation: oral (Need to be confirmed by the SOC)
