The whole observing
process is robotically operated and can be remotely supervised.
With 10 min steps the
data is presented online. The raw data are saved on
magnetic tape and - during manual event list processing -
offline stored on CD-ROMs ready for detailed scientific
There is a morphology classification of radio burst emission:
radio continua (noise storms, type IV, and V bursts), fast (type
III and RS), slow (type II) drift bursts and spectral fine
structures (e.g. pulsations, fiber bursts, spikes, type I
monthly event lists is published in NOAA Solar
Geophysical Data issued by the U.S. Department of Commerce,

space missions (e.g.
Type II bursts are the radio signature of shock waves in the
solar corona and the solar wind. They can be excited by a
solar flare but also by an erupting prominence or a coronal
mass ejection. The observation of type II bursts is of some
relevance for the space weather aspect of solar physics.
Therefore we present a
list of all
type II bursts observed at AIP since September 1993.
