Abstract : Coronal spectra taken at the solar limb are made at the Climax Station of the High Altitude Observatory, the Sacramento Peak Observatory at Sunspot, New Mexico, Pic du Midi in France, and the Kislovodsk Station of the Pulkovo Observatory in Russia. These four stations express the line intensity of the lambda 5303 and lambda 6374 emission lines in terms of the brightness of the center of the solar disk. The values thus obtained are in good internal agreement, and taken together provide sufficient data for us to compute a reliable day-to-day quadrant index as explained below. (Author)
