DESCRIPTION OF THE NEUTRON MONITOR DATA SETS:

Stations specifications Data Availability  Comments  Acknowledgements

The neutron monitor data sets are the parts of the "Heliosphere" database supported by the Institute for Cosmophysical Research and Aeronomy SB RAS, Yakutsk, Russia. 
These data sets contain the 5-minute values of the neutron component of the cosmic ray intensity measured by several cosmic ray stations. Data gaps were filled with zeroes for the missing intervals.

DATA AVAILABILITY:


Data for TIXIE BAY station are available from Jan 2, 1980 upto Dec 31, 1991 and Jan 1, 1999 to present.
At present data are updated every day.
Data for the current year are priliminary !!!

COMMENTS:

Flag meanings:
flag = 0 - regular operation
flag = 1 - failure of the 1st section
flag = 2 - failure of the 2nd section
flag = 3 - failure of the 3d section
flag = 4 - barograph was out of operation
flag = 5 - station was out of operation
flag = 6 - data were interpolated for up to 6 hours interval of one section failure
flag = 7 - uncorrected count rate and pressure data were lost
