Abstract:

The solar-terrestrial environment is monitored by a wide variety of scientific sensors located throughout the world and on space platforms. This second edition of the Directory of Solar-Terrestrial Physics Monitoring Stations presents detailed information for 1163 sensors used to monitor this environment. The scientific disciplines covered are solar and interplanetary phenomena, ionospheric phenomena, flare-associated events, geomagnetic variations, aurora, cosmic rays, airglow, and miscellaneous related phenomena such as atmospheric ozone. The following summary station tables are also given master station list, alternate name list, listing by subdiscipline, and a list of stations closed since the first directory was published in 1977. In addition, a status report summarizes the relative decrease in solar-terrestrial physics monitoring activities since 1976. Keywords Solar-terrestrial physics Solar phenomena Solar activity Cosmic rays Aurora Geomagnetic activity Ionospheric phenomena Solar-terrestrial data Solar-terrestrial monitoring Interplanetary phenomena Solar flares and Airglow.
