Recent System Updates and Notes (last update: 22 Apr 2010)
  1. The ACE data is now being retrieved from the new SWPC E-SWDS SQL-server (falling back to downloading SWPC web files automatically if the E-SWDS is unavailable).
  2. The real-time NCEP/NWS GRIB2 files are currently on-line. The processing algorithm gets both the last most recent and the next forecasted files (they are at a 3-hour cadence). The one that is closest to the current time is the one that is used, so there is at most a 90-minute difference between the current time and the time of the most recent GRIB file.
  3. The GOES particles are now first retrieved from the SWPC E-SWDS SQL-server (falling back to downloading SWPC web files automatically if the E-SWDS is unavailable, and if the primary GOES satellite measuring particles is unavailable, the secondary satellite will be used). Note: GOES-11 is the primary satellite, according to NOAA/SWPC, and GOES-10 is the secondary (due to instrument problems).
  4. The ACE "gap" extrapolation algorithm has been upgraded. It is based on a persistance algorithm, to be used operationally when no data are available. It is now capable of extrapolating data out for long periods of time when, in operations, the data are not available. It ensures the extrapolated data stays in the neighborhood of prior data, slowly varying so that it can be differenced in subsequent processing. These data are available under the "Storm Matrix Study: ACE SWEPAM Protons" expanding panel below.
      1. Ace Gap Algorithm - Sample Data Plot (Oct 26-30, 2003)
      2. ACE Gap Algorithm - Flowchart
  5. The GOES 10 and 11 proton data for the Matrix time periods is now online. All channels are stored (just in case they are needed). The >60 MeV proton flux channel is currently not available.
  6. The F10.7 data is now online current plots are under the solar tab at http://www.spacewx.com/Space_Weather_Now.html
  7. 4 Jun 09 - The F10.7, Ap, Dst, ACE EPAM, and GOES HEPAD data Files for the Study Periods (aka Storm Matrix) are now online (see below).
  8. 4 Jun 09 - A bug in the code that produces the Kyoto DST values was detected, the files and plots have been corrected.
  9. 4 Jun 09 - A Java program was completed that is capable of doing interpolations for missing data. It uses a modified cubic spline algorithm. An example figure can be found at: (Jplot_Dst_test.pdf).
  10. 17 Jun 09 - A Java program was completed that is capable of doing interpolations, converting 64-sec ACE SWEPAM data to 5-min averages. It uses a modified cubic spline algorithm. NOTE: ACE was off-line after 2003-10-28 12:45. See the updated item 4 above.
  11. 29 Jun 09 - ACE SWEPAM data downloaded from Data downloaded from ACE Science Center, which is at a 64-second cadence (see 10 above), has been converted to 5-minute averages and is now online. This data is to be considered provisional until verified.
  12. Additional improvements have been made for the ACE SWEPAM Storm Matrix data periods. New plot and data files have been updated on this site. The data files have three additional columns indicating whether the data are missing (0), measured (1), interpolated (2), or extrapolated (3). Users should update their copies.
  13. 7 Jul 09, The (preliminary) WSO Solar Polar Field Strength is now online, waiting for verification. There are questions on how to handle averages, as the 30-day average, calculated by WSO, is currently in the data.
  14. 4 Aug 09. The Moscow (Izmarin) Neutron data for the study period is now online. It is unclear at this point what the units and calibration of the "Corrected Count" and "Count Rate" are.
  15. 3 Sep 09. The Kyoto Dst data has been moved from the raps_ops operations software, and now executes in its own directory/cron environment. This was necessitated by multiple projects (recently added) simultaneously processing the data (effectively "stepping on each others foot"). Also, the Oulu Neutron data for the storm study period is now online.
  16. 6 Sep 09. The Thule neutron data for the storm matrix period is now online. The Thule data includes 4 stations: Thule, McMurdo, Swathmore/Newark, and the South Pole.
  17. 7 Sep 09. The Lomnicky neutron data for the storm matrix period is now online. There was one ambiguity: The hours downloaded from the site used hours labeled as 1-24 (UT is assumed). The SET data processing subtracted an hour for the output data file, but that does beg the question as to whether the hour labeled in the Lomnicky data refers to the begining or end of the hour. This needs to be verified.
  18. 8 Sep 09. Minor website and file changes. The ACE SWEPAM files have metadata sources columns added, the files for the storm matrix period use a consistent file name format, and the example of the interpolation of 64-sec to 5-min moved to a separate page.
  19. 25 Sep 09. Temperature and pressure data files for stom matrix period are now online.
  20. 28 Sep 09. The earlier ambiguity of the Moscow neutron data sources has been resolved. Two movies are online.
  21. 3 Oct 09. ACE Magnetomer data is now online.
  22. 13 Oct 09. ACE IMF data is now online.
  23. 14 Oct 09. Realtime Thule data is now online.
  24. 26 Oct 09. A new link to SEC's real-time Dst link added in real-time data table: http://spacenv.com/~vince/RDST/. The Oulu corrected_count bug was fixed (corrected count was wrong).
  25. 16 Dec 09. The new SET server, terra2, has been installed and raps_ops modules are gradually being ported to it from terra1. To start, the SAS Lomnicky data retrieval, and delivery of data files to sol now runs on terra2. This new Xserve (running the Snow Leopard OS using the Intel X86 chipset) improves performance by about 50%, and the over-loaded terra1 will be less inclined to have problems as jobs are migrated to terra2. It will take several months to get everything related to raps_ops moved over, but new operations programs will be written to run on terra2. One significant change is "cron" jobs are being replaced by "launchd" - a far more powerful application that makes jobs true scheduled daemons, while greatly simplifying the scheduling of complex inter-related raps_ops programs.
  26. 18 Dec 09. There has been a discouraging development in producing plots and figures using the 3rd-party application "JfreeChart": due to increased system security under the new Mac OS X 10.6 OS, JfreeChart no longer works as an application.
  27. 18 Dec 09. Thule neutron data now served from terra2. Note the data are retrieved from http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/ftpdir/lists/neutron/
  28. 20 Dec 09. As applications are ported from terra1 to terra2, two fundamental changes are made: (1) cron jobs are now replaced with launchd, making individual processes (e.g., thule_ops) run as true daemons, (2) scp will be replaced with rsynch, increasing file transfer speeds by well over 100.
  29. 29 Dec 09. The JfreeChart problem for producing time series plots has been resolved.
  30. 30 Dec 09. Thule neutron data - now just doing 1-minute cadence data to be consistent with other neutron data - has been re-factored to include the production of the Deadman file, and to use the mySQL database: this version is now the full operational version serverd from terra2.
  31. 1 Jan 10. The Moscow neutron data is now online serverd from terra2.
  32. 5 Feb 10. The NCEP air/temperature (GRIB) and NWS air/temperature processing has been ported to terra2, and is now operational
  33. 27 Feb 10. The Oulu neutron data is now online on terra2. The Oulu data is pushed from the University of Oulu directly into the terra2 database, every minute. Subsequent processing on terra2 is at a 5-minute cadence. Data latency is between 1-7 minutes.
  34. 29 Mar 10. A bug was discovered in the current F10_last_140days.txt data file. The header line:

    # YYYYMMDD JD F10.7_Adjusted F10.7_Observed F10.7_1AU
    # ------------- --- ------------------- ------------------- -------------
    20091110 2455146.32200 XX.XXX 0.0000 YY.YYY

    Should have read:

    # YYYYMMDD JD F10.7_Observed F10.7_1AU
    # ------------- --- ------------------- -------------
    20091110 2455146.32200 XX.XXX YY.YYY

    The F10_last_140days.txt now has this corrected version.

  35. 29 Mar 10. The NOAA/NWS ftp server where the Current NOAA/NWS Temperature Data is retrieved is proving to be extremely unreliable: it is either unavailable, or is running so slowly that file transfers time out before all data is downloaded. Use the NCEP/NWS data instead.
  36. 14 Apr 10. NOAA/SWPC has decommissioned GOES-12, and have changed the primary satellite for particle to GOES-13, and the secondary to GOES-11. raps_ops software will, for the time being, continue to use the GOES-11 data until all SWPC GOES-13 particle data channels becomes available. Also, the naming convention for SWPC web-based data files has changed. For example G11* filenames are either prefixed with Gp* (primary) or Gs* (secondary). These changes have had a significant impact of raps_ops particle data processing, and code is being re-written to handle the changes.
  37. 15 Apr 10. All documents, data, and plot files are now available from the public NAIRAS website. Temporary patches have been made to handle GOES particle data filename changes from SWPC. When raps_ops GOES processing is ported to terra2, significant code refactoring must be done to be more robust and less susceptible to changes in GOES particle data sources.
  38. 22 Apr 10. Current effective GSR dose rate figure added public NAIRAS website.
  39. 15 May 10. GOES Pchan code has been completely re-written to operate within it's own program space. It is much more robust. It uses for input data the SWPC E-SWDS exclusively. It continues to use GOES-11 because only GOES-11 has channels P8-P11. GOES-14 HEPAD channels need calibration at NOAA/SWPC, time to be done undetermined. Note that both the GOES Particles and Pchannel real-time data files have had an additional metadata line added or changed. The monotonicity is checked for the data, and an Is_monotonic set in the metadata

Notes:

1-min values are calculated from 64-sec data by using a 64-sec value that falls within a 1-minute "bucket", e.g., a 64-sec value at HH:01:04 is identified as a 1-min HH:01:00 value, and a 64-sec value at HH:01:58 is identified as a 1-min HH:01:00 value. The JD, however, refers to the time in seconds of each data value as originally read. The data are in GSM coordinates.

Storm Matrix Study: WSO Solar Polar Field Strength
WSO Polar Field

WSO_Polar_03-05.data.txt

(preliminary)

WSO data description:

The Sun's Polar Field strength is measured in the polemost 3' apertures at WSO each day, north and south. The polemost aperture measures the line-of-sight field between about 55 and the poles. As Earth moves above and below the equator each year the solar coordinates of the apertures shift. Depending on the observatory optics and the date, the square aperture at the pole will be oriented differently on the Sun during each measurement. Each 10 days the usable daily polar field measurements in a centered 30-day window are averaged. A 20nhz low pass filtered values eliminate yearly geometric projection effects (not shown here). Data are updated about once a month.
