Solar Magnetograms and FiltergramsEntry ID: Flare_Genesis_Experiment
Abstract: The Flare Genesis dataset contains level 1 solar vector magnetograms, filtergrams and Dopplergrams of AR 8844 on the sun on January 25, 2000.
On January 10 - 27, 2000, an 80-cm F/1.5 Ritchey-Chretien solar telescope flew for18 days suspended from a balloon in the stratosphere above Antarctica. The goal of the flight was to acquire long time series of high-resolution solar images and vector ... magnetograms of the solar photosphere and chromosphere. Such observations will help to advance our basic scientific understanding of solar activity, in particular, flares and coronal mass ejections. Flying well above the turbulent layers of the Earth's atmosphere, the telescope obtained unprecedented sharp and stable observations of small-scale solar features. During most of the flight, contact with the payload was sporadic and only instrument status could be telemetered down. After the flight, the data were recovered from on-board tapes. These data were reduced at JHU/APL and placed on our web site at http://sd-www.jhuapl.edu/FlareGenesis/.
