Abstract : The solar radio emission consists of (a) a basic component from the undisturbed Sun remaining constant for a considerable time; (b) a slowly varying component emitted from active centres on the solar surface showing a slow day to day variation in intensity; and (c) a rapidly varying component of short duration known as 'bursts'. This paper gives an evaluation of an index of radio burst activity at 10.7 cm which, it is hoped, will supplement other indices of solar activity that already exist. (Author)
