Summary
Abstract: Reconstructed solar total and background irradiances.
11-yr Tootal Solar Irradiance (TSI) component since 1874 is from Foukal and
Lean: earlier from Hoyt Sunspot Groups
Background Brightness component is Average Hoyt Group Count per cycle

Data in 1995, 1996 & 1997 appended May 98.
