Solar Imagery - White Light - ISOONEntry ID: gov.noaa.ngdc.stp.solar.solar-images_white-light_isoon
Abstract: The Improved Solar Observing Optical Network (ISOON) project is a collaboration between the Air Force Research Laboratory Space Vehicles Directorate and the National Solar Observatory. ISOON is a semi-autonomous, remotely commandable patrol telescope designed for studies of solar activity in support of space weather specifications and forecasts. ISOON can receive and analyze solar images and other data at a remote location -- in essence, forming a desktop solar observatory. ISOON acquires solar images in the hydrogen-alpha line (once per minute), in continuum (once every ten minutes), and in line-of-sight magnetic fields. The current dataset is limited to daily solar images in the 630.315 continuum.
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.
