Solar radio flux - plot of rotational averages

For an accessible version of the rotational averages, please view the Rotational Averages (HTML version).

Plot of Rotational Averages. Description follows.

The rotational averages are the radio emission from the Sun at a wavelength of 10.7 centimetres averaged over the Carrington Rotation. Vertical scale units are in solar flux units (1 sfu = 10-22.m-2.Hz-1), horizontal units are Carrington Rotation number. Carrington Rotation Number is the number of times the Sun has rotated since 9th November, 1853. The rotation period is roughly 27 days.
