Abstract:

A list of the significant solar proton events for the period 1955 through 1969 has been prepared with identification limited to events with solar proton induced absorption as measured by a riometer in the earths polar caps. A total of 139 events were identified over this 15-year period. This table was compiled after a thorough search of primary data sources in order to ascertain an onset time, a time of maximum absorption, the value of the maximum absorption, and the duration of each event. The observing location is identified for each of the events. Author
