|The graph (click for a bigger version) gives an overview of the daily, monthly, monthly smoothed and yearly ISN from 1700 up to 2009. For the first part of the 18th century, our archive includes
only yearly numbers. From January 1749, the time resolution ranges up to a month, the monthly smoothed is plotted from July 1749. While from Jan 01, 1818, we have daily numbers with a complete coverage from 1849. As time progresses,
the available time resolution becomes smaller. Only in the last part of the graph, the provisional numbers are used: the monthly smoothed number is provisional from 6 months before the last plotted point, i.e. June 2008, the monthly and daily number is provisional from Dec 2008.
Prior, the definitive data are plotted. |
