Abstract : Daily solar radio flux observations have been examined for a relationship to the large-scale photospheric magnetic field structure. Interplanetary magnetic field sector boundaries were used to indicate boundaries between photospheric field regions of opposite polarity. An enhancement in emission was found about four days before the boundary central meridian passage. Most of the effect came from emission near toward-to-away type boundaries. A higher level of emission appears to be associated with toward field regions than with away field regions. (Author)
