Data on solar event of May 23, 1967 and its geophysical effects

  • Description:
    "This report was inspired by the offer of a collection of reduced magentic records for the May 25-26, 1967 geomagnetic storm by S. -I. Akasofu for publication in the IER-FB "Solar-Geophysical Data" reports. At approximately the same time we became aware of several papers in the literature concerned with the solar flare associated with this storm. Also at the September 1968 International Symposium on the Physics of the Magnetosphere in Washington D.C., several papers were read presenting satellite data concerned with the period. Thus, it was decided that rather than publishing simple data tabulations or figures in the "Miscellaneous Section" of "Solar-Geophysical Data", we should compile an expanded data publication. Some of the data published in "Solar-Geophysical Data" are represented here, and other reports routinely sent to World Data Center A, Upper Atomosphere Geophysics, have been utilized. The significance of the report rests, hoever, in the expanded contributions of the many scientists who made this data collection possible. SInce it has been impossible to circulate each person's contribution to each of the others, there will be some repetition, but from different viewpoints. The data are grouped into 8 sections, with several contributors to most of them. In some cases the introductory test in supplied by the compiler. It should be noted that it was not pracical in this case to search out relevant data from all worldwide sources. Rather, we have requested cooperation from regular contributors to the World Data Center and from other sources which happened to come to our attention. It may be mentioned that the Pennsylvania State University, Radio Astronomy Observatory was unfortunately not in operation at the time of the flare and so is not represented in this report. The cooperation of all contributors to this report as identified in detail in the various subsections is gratefully acknoledged" - - Introduction, page 1.
