Shortcuts to near real time solar-terrestrial data plots

Note: due to practical reasons, only the provider of each WWW page is given in []-brackets. In many cases, there are several participants in one project. For more information, study the appropriate pages. In most cases data are preliminary.

In some cases data files are available too.
