Abstract:

The zenith auroral spectra at College, Alaska, obtained during the 1957-1959 observing seasons, is assembled in catalogue form. The prime purpose of the catalogue is to present the auroral activity in a manner which can be used by others in the interpretation of aurorally associated phenomena. From the general appearance of the spectra and other factors, a table of daily index numbers is given for two observing periods. Although these numbers should not be used in themselves as correlation data they are valuable as representative indices. This point is indicated by the clear appearance of the spring maximum in activity and a general yearly decline in activity towards the minimum of the sunspot cycle. Author
