Abstract:

A solar flare measuring system, developed by this center and employing semiautomated computer-video techniques, was used in a flare patrol network to study fine temporal structure during optical flares and to afford direct comparison with both radio and x-ray data. Flare data collected between January 1971 and June 1974 are presented, comprising both a summary of peak area, brightness, and times as well as more complete time history profiles on an event-by-event basis.
