Solar activity was low; lots of spots but not many big flares. Given the flare occurrence power law, having 27 C-class events and no M-class or higher suggests a rollover.
How many GOES flares occurred?
Flares above B, C, M, X class were 5 27 0 0
And how many of these are listed in the RHESSI flare list?
Flares above B, C, M, X class were 3 20 0 0
And how many had EXCELLENT coverage?
Flares above B, C, M, X class were 2 12 0 0
There were RHESSI flares/GOES flares 210 / 32 over the time range 29-Nov-11 06-Dec-11
There are possible examples of "limb-intercepted" flares at http://sprg.ssl.berkeley.edu/~tohban/browser/?show=qlpcr+qli02+qli03+qli04&date=20111202&time=220425 and http://sprg.ssl.berkeley.edu/~tohban/browser/?show=qlpcr+qli02+qli03+qli04&date=20111202&time=220425. These are particularly interesting for our forthcoming study of properties of the X-ray absorption limb.
Another weak but interesting flare, http://sprg.ssl.berkeley.edu/~tohban/browser/?show=grth+qlpcr+gbmo&date=20111205&time=190649&bar=1, could very well set a record for impulsivity.
SSR is emptying.
No data gaps.
Detector noise and spikes do not seem to be so bad this week, but G8 (I think) acted up for a couple of orbits on Dec. 4: http://sprg.ssl.berkeley.edu/~tohban/browser/?show=monfs&date=20111204&time=072620&bar=1
