Real-time Cosmic Ray Variations (Data base of Moscow Neutron Monitor)
WEB address: http://cr0.izmiran.rssi.ru/mosc/main.htm
Provider: © Cosmic Ray Department of Solar-Terrestrial Division of IZMIRAN.

Database contents of Moscow neutron monitor data starting from 1958: Hourly data up from January 1958 (IGY-monitor until September 1968, then 18NM, until 1994 24NM-Supermonitor). The interval of accumulation: hourly from 1958; besides, 5-minute data (from January 1989 - June 1991) and 1-minute since July 1994. Database updating goes in real time.

Interactive access
Data in this regime are available in graphical and in digital presentation as well.
All graphical plots are given relative to February 1987.
Time Resolutions: (1, 5, 10 or 15) minutes, hourly:(1, 6 or 12), dayly:(1 or 27), 1 month, 1 year;

  • There are three types of 1-minute data: neutron monitor data corrected for atmospheric pressure (C), atmospheric pressure (P), and neutron monitor data uncorrected for atmospheric pressure (U).
  • Hourly data are presented uncorrected (U) and corrected for atmospheric pressure (P).
  • Pressure corrected hourly data are kept as original (O) and corrected (C).


SDO Feature Finding Team (Using our "eyes on the Sun")
WEB address: http://solar.physics.montana.edu/sol_phys/fft/
Provider: © NASA: (Feature Finding Team, FFT)

The Solar Dynamics Observatory SDO continually observes the Sun, producing a huge amount (1.5TB per day) of high quality data. In order to analyze the data near real time, NASA selected an international consortium (Feature Finding Team, FFT) to produce a comprehensive automated feature-recognition system for SDO data. The automated system is comprised of individual “modules” developed by the various institutions.

FFT delivers metadata: real-time space weather alerts, VOEvent formatted catalogs and annotated images, available on-line via the Virtual Solar Observatory (VSO)
