The White Light Solar Corona an Atlas of K-coronameter Synoptic Charts December 1981 - January 1983

This report contains data obtained during the synoptic observing project of the High Altitude Observatory's Coronal Dynamics Program that began on 5 August 1980 from the Mark-II1 K-coronameter located at the Mauna Loa Solar Observatory, Hawaii. This data which is published yearly in volumes of The White Light Solar Corona; An Atlas Of K Coronameter Synoptic Charts (Table 1). The reader will notice a segment of overlapped data at both the beginning and the end of each volume. This is necessary to provide a complete data set of Carrington rotations covering a specific time period because west limb passage occurs 14 days after the east limb passage. This set of synoptic data should be regarded as a preliminary presentation in which no corrections have been made for the day-to-day variations in sky transmission and scattering of polarized light by the earth's atmosphere. While there is some inaccuracy incurred in neglecting these effects, it is still possible to use the data set as a characterization of the white light corona. Data from the east and west limbs are presented separately, as transient and evolutionary changes in the white light corona substantially modify the distribution of coronal material over the 14 days between sequential limb transients.
