The high cadence, open-ended Hpo indices is similar to the Kp index, but have a time resolution of 30 and 60 minutes, called the Hp30 and Hp60, respectively. The Hpo indices were developed in the H2020-project Swami. Hpo goes back to 1995. It is accompanied by the linear apo indices referred to as ap30 and ap60.

News for Hpo Index Users
- September 2022: The new Hpo index (Hp30, Hp60) websites https://kp.gfz-potsdam.de/en/hp30-hp60 allow state-of-the-art data downloads and contain numerous figures of the Kp index time series and derived products. All previous data streams will be maintained.
- March 2022: Slight correction of some index values after 2017. The new version of the Hpo index has the https://doi.org/10.5880/Hpo.0002 and supersedes the version https://doi.org/10.5880/Hpo.0001.
- July 2020: On this website, we are currently establishing links for data download for the Hpo and apo indices. A description of the index will follow.
