NOAAPredictIndicesLightCurve

class sunpy.lightcurve.NOAAPredictIndicesLightCurve(data, meta=None)[source] [edit on github]

Bases: sunpy.lightcurve.LightCurve

NOAA Solar Cycle Predicted Progression The predictions are updated monthly and are produced by ISES. Observed values are initially the preliminary values which are replaced with the final values as they become available.

The following predicted values are available. * The predicted RI sunspot number is the official International Sunspot Number and is issued by the Solar Influence Data Analysis Center (SDIC) in Brussels, Belgium. * The predicted radio flux at 10.7 cm is produced by Penticon/Ottawa and the units are in sfu.

Examples

>>> from sunpy import lightcurve as lc
>>> noaa = lc.NOAAPredictIndicesLightCurve.create()  
>>> noaa.peek()

peek(**plot_args)[source] [edit on github]

Plots predicted NOAA Indices as a function of time. An example is shown below.

..plot:

from sunpy import lightcurve as lc
from sunpy.data.sample import NOAAPREDICT_TIMESERIES
noaa = lc.NOAAPredictIndicesLightCurve.create(NOAAPREDICT_TIMESERIES)
noaa.peek()
Parameters:**plot_args (dict) – Any additional plot arguments that should be used when plotting.
