Baseline Products: Solar Flux: X-ray

SWPC’s current GOES XRS product can be visited by clicking here. The GOES-R X-Ray flux product will be similar, but with increased dynamic range to capture the largest flares.

The Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) will rely on this product to issue warnings when there are large increases in solar X-ray output from solar flares which cause changes in the ionosphere. These X-ray flares are currently used by SWPC to give warnings of radio blackouts of terrestrial High Frequency (HF) radio communications.
