Measuring magnetic field variations of the Sun through old data

From the data beginning from 1967 to the present, the magnetic field of the Sun reverses its call every 11 years. One magnetic field is Wilcox solar observatory from the US.

Data from Kodaikanal solar observatory, established in 1899, extend the magnetic field calculations. Its essential feature is the multi-wavelength observations withhold the spectral images of the Sun. It uses Ca 2 K and H-alpha lines, which makes the image of the chromosphere.

Magnetic field evolution research can improve physics understanding. Knowing the variations on the sun enhances the understanding of climate and space weather.
