Abstract:

Observations of the diurnal variation of 5577 AOI for the same night for four nights in September 1961 at Sacramento Peak, New Mexico and Natick, Massachusetts were compared. The product moment correlation coefficient for the intensities at the same local mean times was zero, showing that no correlation existed. Correlation coefficients were then calculated using hourly and daily values for Sacramento Peak with Fritz Peak, Colorado, Rapid City, South Dakota, and Haute Provence, France, using IGY-IGC data. These were found to be significant at better than the 5 significance level except for the Sacramento Peak-Haute Provence daily correlation. The reason for the discrepancy between this correlation and that for Sacramento Peak-Natick is not known at this time. Additional experimental work is needed to resolve the discrepancy or determine its cause. Author
