  • Description:
    "This report is one of a series of special data compilations and discussion on solar-terrestrial events of special interest and collects in one place more data and more detailed data than normally appear in the scientific literature. Cosmic ray increases at sea level are relatively rare phenomena and there has been an informal consensus among cosmic ray scientists that such a compilation should be made for the event of November 18, 1968. Actually this report is an outgrowth of the preceeding one in this series, UAG-8 "Data on Solar Geophysical Activity October 24 - November 6, 1968." That report was compiled to fulfill a recommendation of the Inter-union Commission on Solar-Terrestrial Physics and was the result of the more than 50 replies providing detailed data or discussions of observations. In these replies, many cosmic ray workers in particular included data and discussions of observations. In these replies, many cosmic ray workers in particular included data or discussion through November 18, commenting that this was a very significant phenomena associated with the solar activity of the preceeding weeks. Rather than have UAG-8 include data and discussions on the November 18 event from some authors but not others, it was decided to prepare this separate report from this volunteered information, supplemented by the results of a new request to the other contributors to UAG-8. This is a truely international effort as can be seen by the list of contributors, acknolwedgement of whose participation is implicit. The solar-terrestrial scientific community is indebted to the compilers and editors of this report, the staff of World Data Center-A, Upper Atmosphere Geophysics, MIss J. Viginia Lincoln, Director. The provision os these special data reports, however, is still an experiment in communication within the scientific community and teh reaction os the community to this approach will determine the future course of these efforts" - - Foreword, page 1.
