That shows the opposite of what my original link reads but as extreme. Any experts in the field here?
I'm not expert. And the "spike" is gone from the Athens chart... Should of took a screen shot. I was going to take a screenshot...(derp)
The positive negative thing is a deviation from the norm. Each neutron strike is an event that is counted. The "average" number of counts is a
"baseline". Below that number is less counts than the norm and above is more counts. There are menus at the left of the page on the Athens link. You
can check sites all over the world. The "Kerg" track is the Moscow site and it reflects negative here as well. So... it would indicate a glitch in
the instrument. Maybe a power issue or technician on break messin' with us? Dunno...
Waiting to hear from others or further developments. The Athens link doesn't let me bring search results, just the home page. Goto the menu on left
and select "NMDB DataBase" and under that "data". Thats the link to online stations around the world. At the bottom of that menu under "scale"
click on "counts". Thats counts per minute or (CPM). Thats easier for people to understand.
I hate the scientific community for always making things PHD speak... mad:
