Solar magnetic fields

  • A. Severny
Article

Abstract

This paper is a review of our observational knowledge on solar magnetic fields. In Section 1 we make an attempt to summarize all observations of the general magnetic field (m.f.) of the Sun. Section 2 deals with the local m.f. at low latitudes and their connection with some features on the disk. The m.f. of sunspots and their peculiar character are considered in Section 3. The last section (4) is concerned with m.f. in sunspot groups, their changes and connections with solar activity.
