Hpo indices of Global Geomagnetic Activity

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.

We acknowledge the following geomagnetic observatories and the institutes that maintain them for providing data that allow us to calculate Hpo:

  • Canberra (CNB) maintained by: Geoscience Australia (Australia);
  • Eskdalemuir (ESK) maintained by: British Geological Survey (UK);
  • Eyrewell (EYR) maintained by: GNS Science (New Zealand);
  • Fredericksburg (FRD) maintained by: U.S. Geological Survey (US);
  • Hartland (HAD) maintained by: British Geological Survey (UK);
  • Lerwick (LER) maintained by: British Geological Survey (UK);

Neues für Hpo Index Nutzer

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.
