Summary
Abstract: Collection includes a variety of H-alpha photographic datasets
contributed by a number of national and private solar observatories located
worldwide. Solar observations in hydrogen-alpha (656.3 nm) reveal the structure and
dynamics of chromospheric features including prominences, filaments, plague,
filaments and the chromospheric network.

Purpose: The NGDC Solar and Terrestrial Physics (STP) division provides
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.
