Count Component Title Abstract
1 Photographs of the Sun in Hydrogen Alpha - Chromospheric Observations Collection includes a variety of H-alpha photographic datasets contributed by a number of national and private solar observatories located worldwide. Solar observations in hydrogen-alpha (656.3 nm) reveal the structure and dynamics of chromospheric features including prominences, filaments, plague, filaments and the chromospheric network.

            3 http://www.bbso.njit.edu NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) The Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) is part of the National Weather Service and is one of the nine National Centers for Environmental Prediction. It is the nation's official source of space weather alerts, watches and warnings. SWPC provides real-time monitoring and forecasting of solar and geophysical events which impact satellites, power grids, communications, navigation, and many other technological systems. SWPC also explores and evaluates new models and products and transitions them into operations. SWPC is also the primary warning center for the International Space Environment Service and works with many national and international partners with whom data, products, and services are shared.

            1 http://www.nso.edu/ National Solar Observatory The mission of the National Solar Observatory is to advance knowledge of the Sun, both as an astronomical object and as the dominant external influence on Earth, by providing forefront observational opportunities to the research community. The mission includes the operation of cutting edge facilities, the continued development of advanced instrumentation both in-house and through partnerships, conducting solar research, and educational and public outreach. NSO accomplishes this mission by; 1) Providing leadership for the development of new ground-based facilities that support the scientific objectives of the solar and solar-terrestrial physics community; 2) Advancing solar instrumentation in collaboration with university researchers, industry, and other government laboratories; 3) Providing background synoptic observations that permit solar investigations from the ground and space to be placed in the context of the variable Sun; 4) Providing research opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students, helping develop classroom activities, working with teachers, and mentoring high school students; 5) Innovative staff research.
