Individual Data Series notes
On 18 January 2011 the series hmi.V_avg120 was modified to change: All records created before that date used the old values of the segment types and scaling defaults. (Modifications to the datavg module just prior to that date mean that records subsequently created may have been created with scalings overriding the new defaults.) Affected data with the old types and scalings are in the Carrington time range 2100:300 – 2102:060.

Records hmi.V_avg120[2096-2125] used values of CROTA2 in the input data that were subsequently modified by subtraction of 0°.07 (going from a nominal 180° to 179°.93). The corresponding values of CROTA2 in hmi.V_avg120 have not (yet) been modified.

On 17 October 2012 the series hmi.V_avg120 was modified to add a generic Log segment to record information about the input records as supported by datavg v 1.2

Module datavg versions used in producing definitive data, by Carrington time:

Data Record organization
Individual records correspond to the averages of the input data images for the record interval comprehended by the prime key values.

Data Segments
The data segments are expected to include up to three segments of the same form as those of the input records, stored as either bin or fits protocol files, to contain the mean, the variance and the count of valid values, respectively, although the scaling and offset values are likely to be different from one another and those of the mean from those of the input records. In particular, the data for the variance and count should be offset for maximum precision, as no negative values are possible. (unless the variance/power is represented as its log!). An additional generic protocol segment is optional; if present, it may be used to record textual information about the input records processed. For a discussion of the various segment protocols, see segments.
