◆ Deep Flare Net-Reliable (DeFN-R)
・Our prediction model using deep neural networks, named Deep Flare Net (DeFN),
obtains solar observation data in real time and predicts solar flares in the next 24 hr.
・Deep Flare Net-Reliable (DeFN-R) is an extension of the original forecast model
DeFN for probabilistic forecasting, with improved reliability over DeFN.
・The scale of the flare is called X, M, and C class from the largest to the smallest. DeFN-R
forecasts the probability of X-class, M-class or higher, and C-class or higher flares.
・The bar graph shows the forecasted probability of a flare. We achieved a hight level of
confidence with a small difference between the forecast probability and the frequency
of occurrence by DeFN-R.
・If you want to predict whether a flare will occur or not, you need to set a probability
threshold. When the probability threshold is set to the median of the flare occurrence
distribution, it reproduces the same performance as DeFN.
・The probability of occurrence P for the full solar disk of M-class or higher is displayed
in the upper right corner. When the probability of occurrence in each region is
p1, p2, p3..., it is calculated by P=1-(1-p1)(1-p2)(1-p3)....
