Solar Proton Events

Solar flares affect the intensity and spectral composition of solar radiation. In the region of intense solar flares, energetic charged particles (mainly protons and electrons) are formed that reach the Earth's orbit a few hours after the outburst (solar proton events).

Data on the increase of proton fluxes in near-Earth space for 1970-2011 collected and systematized in a unified format in the catalogues of solar proton events (SPE). These catalogues include SPE in which the maximum proton flux with energy E ≥ 10 MeV exceeds the value 1 см-2с-1ср-1 (pfu).

The entire series of catalogues is aimed at collection, systematisation and uniform presentation of information about solar proton events.

Catalogues can be used as SPE reference books, as sources of primary information for searching for the statistical and physical regularities of this phenomenon and for studying the physical processes associated with the acceleration and propagation of solar particles. Based on these Catalogues, it is possible to study the geophysical effects of SPE, to develop methods for assessing and predicting the radiation hazard of space flights, and to solve other problems of an applied nature.

These Catalogues were prepared by representatives of a number of scientific research institutions of the Russian Federation, united in a specially created in 1980 working group "Catalog" by the decision of the section "Diagnostics and forecasting of solar proton events" of the Council "Physics of Solar-Terrestrial Relations" of the USSR Academy of Sciences.
