HMI magnetogram gaps in archive

Asked by Patrick McCauley on 2012-04-25

I'm wondering about gaps in the Helioviewer's HMI magnetogram data, with both the online and desktop applications. (ex: 2012/02/12 - 18, 2012/03/04 - 08) Are such gaps backfilled, and if so on what timescale? I'm wondering if I should wait or go through the process getting the actual data. (I'm just looking for basic movies.)


Update: I found what I was looking at the SOHO site and was told that gaps in the recent data for helioviewer are probably normal.

Thank you for pointing out these gaps. We have started to fill in the 2012/02/12 - 18 gap. This may take a day or two to fill in. We will get data for the other gap too. If you find any other gaps, please let us know.

Thanks Jack! Someone here had guessed that perhaps the filling of the archive was not necessarily linear, so since the data was pretty recent it might fill itself in normally. I guess that's not the case so I'm glad I asked!
