[MIS17-P12] Usage of Historical Documents with Scientific Understandings in the field of Solar Physics
Keywords:Solar Physics, Space Weather, Historical Documents
The physical variable of interest is the flare magnitude, and we have developed an estimation method with the statistics based on modern-day solar observations. The key of this method is an observation of low latitude aurora, which is a strong indication of coronal mass ejection at the flare. By knowing the size of sunspot and the existence of coronal mass ejection, our statistical method could estimate the magnitude of the flare.
At our poster, we will discuss the potentiality and difficulty of solar physics with historical documents. We hope this poster could be a demonstration of successful collaboration of science and history.
