Annals of the International Geophysical Year, Volume 34: Solar Radio Emission During the International Geophysical Year covers the significant solar radio emission events observed during the International Geophysical Year (IGY). This book is composed of six chapters, and begins with a summary of tabulated quantities describing solar radio emission during the IGY. The tabulated figures illustrate the method of recording the position of radio sources on the sun, the use of symbols in describing the structure of bursts observed at single frequencies, and the different types used in a spectral classification of solar activity. The next chapters describe large solar-terrestrial disturbances seen during the IGY. The concluding chapter provides the statistical analysis derives from statistical spectra for several kinds of solar bursts at radio wavelengths and illustrates the sequence and mutual dependence of various manifestations of solar and terrestrial activity through correlograms for the IGY period.
