Updates to One Minute Solar Data


This page lists data updates for one minute solar data. This service can be accessed through the one minute solar data page.

One minute solar data is not a real-time product. Data are generally processed at three-monthly intervals, nominally two months after the last date to be processed. For example, while the exact timing may vary, January to March data would normally be processed in May. This delay allows us to detect (and correct if appropriate) longer-term drift in instruments and other errors which only become apparent after some time. It is not currently possible to provide near real-time data.
