Spawning of Cross-Team Collaborations
Andrés Muñoz-Jaramillo and Niel Sheeley have began a collaboration in which they are using the SOHO-MDI continuum images to calibrate Mount Wilson Observatory (MWO) polar faculae estimates in terms of automated digital measurements of faculae brightness with corresponding measurements of magnetic flux. This substantiates the use of the MWO numbers of polar faculae and provides a reliable data set for constraining solar dynamo theories.
