Abstract

At the Kanzelhöhe Solar Observatory a solar activity monitoring and flare alerting system is under development, which will be based on the parametrization of solar flaring activity using photometric and magnetic full-disk images of the Sun obtained simultaneously with high time cadence. This system will rely on Artificial Neural Networks for pattern recognition, image segmentation, parameterization, and forecasting. In particular, relevant activity indices and indicators will be derived to be used as reliable precursors for flaring activity.
