Solar wind classification

We have devised a four-category classification algorithm for the solar wind, based on Gaussian Processes. The four categories are the ones previously adopted in Xu and Borovsky [2015]: ejecta, coronal hole origin plasma, streamer belt origin plasma, and sector reversal origin plasma. The algorithm is trained and tested on a labeled portion of the OMNI2 dataset.
Here, we distribute a database with about 300,000 hours of labeled solar wind data calculated from OMNI2 for the years 1965-2007.
