[2.18] Review of Solar-Geophysical Data for the October-November 2003 Events

H. Coffey, E. Erwin (NOAA NGDC)

Historical data show a number of extraordinary solar-geophysical events occurring on the declining phase of the solar cycle. Though beyond the time period of high solar maximum, the Sun manages to develop some awesome sunspot groups which seem to come out of nowhere, pummeling us with all kinds of geoeffective impacts. Geomagnetic superstorms occurring during the declining solar activity phase include 1960/11/12, 1972/08/04, 1982/07/13, 1992/05/10 and now 2003/10/29 and following. We review the October/November 2003 solar activity in different wavelengths and their geomagnetic and cosmic ray effects on Earth. Data are available on the web at Solar-Geophysical Data (SGD) PDF version http://sgd.ngdc.noaa.gov and/or on the NGDC ftp site at ftp://ftp.ngdc.noaa.gov/STP/.
