We analyze the co-alignment between Hinode's BFI-Gband images and simultaneous SP maps with the aim of characterizing the general off-sets between them and the second order non-linear effects in SP's slit scanning mechanism. We provide calibration functions and parameters to correct for the nominal pixel scales and positioning.

On the Collective Magnetic Field Strength and Vector Structure of Dark Umbral Cores Measured by the Hinode Spectropolarimeter
We study 7530 sunspot umbrae and pores measured by the Hinode Spectropolarimeter (SP) between November 2006 and November 2012. We primarily seek confirmation of the long term secular decrease in theExpand
Fields and flares : understanding the complex magnetic topologies of solar active regions
Sunspots are regions of decreased brightness on the visible surface of the Sun (photosphere) that are associated with strong magnetic fields. They have been found to be locations associated withExpand
