Abstract : The study describes the development of objective aids for predicting flare occurrence and geomagnetic activity and the development of a set of computer programs to decode solar-geophysical codes. The contribution made by magnetic classification and magnetic intensity of sunspots as precursor variables for predicting flare occurrence is investigated. The usefullness of trend analysis is investigated for predicting the geomagnetic planetary index a sub p. (Author)
