And above is the newly manipulated EISN plot that was done on May 1, 2017.
Notice the elimination of one of the spotless days, on April 9, 2017, which had an original range of 0 to 3, but which has now been replaced with an approximate EISN of 12.
This is a huge discrepancy. The standard deviation on April 9, 2017 was listed as 0.0 with data given as "0". However, I noticed from SILSO's daily text data that there was data for April 9, 2017 from 20 reporting stations that were eliminated as outliers.
- Real date/countdown sp std sr sa
2017 04 09 2017.270 0 0.0 31 51
0 = sp = estimated sunspot number
0.0 = std = standard deviation
31 = sr = stations reporting
51 = sa = stations available
The data of 51 stations was available for 04/09/2017
But only 31 stations were reported for 04/09/2017
This is a difference of 20, so 20 stations had their data eliminated as outliers (data that is too high or too low to fit a standard bell curve). This is unscientific and insane. This cherry picking of data should not be tolerated. If data shows that there are sunspots, then why eliminate that data? This information should have been brought to light much earlier than waiting until May 1, 2017 to doctor the evidence.
There are several other data manipulations, but they fall within the standard deviation.
