MLSO data includes white light corona, emission corona, H-alpha (disk and limb), He-I, and photometric. Access solar data from 1980 to the present.
The CSAC provides a suite of community resource tools for analysis of the precision polarization data for remote sensing of magnetic fields in the solar atmosphere. Currently, Hinode data can be accessed through the web page.
HAO's Fabry Perot interferometers (FPI) measure the mesospheric and thermospheric winds by monitoring the wind induced Doppler shift in the nightglow emissions. Access wind data from three sites (Palmer Station, Resolute Station, and Boulder) from 2003 to present.
HAO obtained scientific eclipse imagery from its own expeditions as well as building an archive of images of solar eclipses which are deemed to be of sufficient quality for research. Access eclipse data from 1869 to present via our archive page.
The McIntosh archive comprises 45 years of hand-drawn solar synoptic maps. They represent a unique record of the large-scale organization and variation of the Sun’s magnetic field over nearly four solar cycles, and are currently being processed to enable digital search and analysis.
Access output from models of flux emergence and subsurface structure of sunspots, most useful for testing helioseismic inversion procedures. Also access output from high resolution sunspot models of photospheric fine structure. These snapshots are computed with non-grey RT and can be used for line synthesis.
coronagraph was HAO's contribution to the Solar Maximum Mission Observatory, launched in 1980. Access white light corona data from 1980, 1984-1989.
The Mauna Loa Solar Observatory (MLSO) occupies part of the NOAA Mauna Loa research site located on the flank of Mauna Loa at an elevation of 3440 meters on the island of Hawaii. It has taken solar data daily, weather-permitting, since 1965, with data available via the web back to 1980.
These interferometers take measurements to aid in the study of the upper atmosphere and ionosphere over the Arctic and the Antarctica Peninsula.
The NVTF is a unique facility that consists of a class 10,000 clean room and a coronagraph calibration chamber. This chamber has been used to calibrate instruments such as the ATM/Skylab Coronagraph, the Solar Maximum Mission Coronagraph/Polarimeter, the Spartan 201 White Light Coronagraph, and COR-1. The NVTF was brought back into operation in FY2001 for NASA's COR-1 coronagraph design evaluation as part of the STEREO Mission.
