  • Description:
    " This report is one of a series of special data compilations on solar-terrestrial events of special interest. It collects in one place detailed data that have appeared in "Solar-Geophysical Data" plus additional data from World Data Center A - Upper Atmosphere Geophysics archives. This data compilation covers the period surrounding November 2, 1969, when a very energetic solar proton event began, and continues through the geomagnetic storm of November 8-10, 1969, the particle event is of particular interest for at least two reasons. it was one of the outstanding proton events this far in this solar cycle, and, it was extensively studies by a special coordinated rocket program (PCA-69) during which several rockets were launched from Churchill, Manitoba, Canada, to investigate various aspects of the event. fortunately, the particle event occurred just two fays prior to the scheduled termination of the three-month long "watch" period at Churchill for the rocket launches. THe geomagnetic storm of November 8-10, 1969, although not especially large, was extensively studied by the OGO-6 experimeters by simultaneous measurements with a variety of instruments aboard OGO-6. The time periods covered by the various types of data were selected as being most appropriate for the data. In some cases they provide a history of solar activity leading up to the proton event or geomagnetic storm, and in other cases they provide a history subsequent to the beginning of these events. In most instances the data here presented are only indicative of the total holdings of World Data Center A - Upper Atmosphere Geophysics. In general, the holdings of World Data Center A - Upper Atmosphere Geophysics fall into the following disciplines (Note: in some disciplines much of the data may actually be held either at WDC-A-Geomagnetism, Seismology and Gravity, at Rockville, Maryland, or at WDC-A-Rockets and Satellites, at Greenbelt, Maryland, but inquiries may be made through WDC-A-Upper Atmosphere Geophysics.)" - - Introduction.
