BAO is noted for its remarkable astroclimatic regime due to an antihunt action of big water area and local anticyclon upon air environment. General Purposes: Observations of a thin structure of active solar formations;Registration of solar flares and other non-stationary phenomena in solar atmosphere. More..
This is due to the specific character of the observatory's main objectives which require very good seeing for polarization observations and solar corona observations.
Main objectives: Measurements of solar magnetic fields;Spectral observations of solar active features and dynamic processes in the solar atmosphere. More..
An origin and diagnostics of geoeffective formations in a solar wind; Modelling of magnetosphere's indignations; Electromagnetic waves in the magnetosphere.A magnetic observatory was established at Irkutsk in 1886 by the Department of National Education. More..
The interval of accumulation: hourly from 1971; 1-minute since August 2000.Database updating goes in real time. An interactive access is possible to this database and FTP as well. More..
Institute of Solar-Terrestrial Physics was founded in 1960 on the basis of the Siberia's oldest geomagnetic observatory formed in 1886. Today it's a big scientific institute. Director - Corresponding Member of RAS Potekhin A. P. Total staff: 468, including 147 researchers, 35 Doctors of Science, 78 Candidates of Science, and 101 engineers. More..
