Halley Bay Mag
Halley Bay saw perhaps Pc4 for most of the day on the 15th, but thus far on the 16th not much is happening.
GOES Electron Flux:
GOES 15 and 13 are still seeing higher fluxes in both the >2MeV and >0.8MeV energy ranges, but they have levelled out since yesterday.
Update on getting L-values for the payloads:
We think we have it figured out! Today we will start re-running the KML files to have the colours reflecting L-value! I will also do the same for the satellites. However this will take a bit of time to run so you'll hopefully start seeing changes in the next couple of days.
Update on getting L-values to overlay on the google earth maps:
This is next on the todo list and we think we may have figured out how to best do this. Worse case scenario we will have what the L-value is on constant lines of geo-graphic latitude.
Update on the Archive viewer:
There is now a zoom feature. Highlight the portion of the plot you would like to zoom in on. To zoom back out just click on the plot. Also in case you haven't notice, the archive viewer doesn't work well if at all with internet explorer. It also runs slow on safari and firefox so Chrome is recommended.
