Sunspot index graphics

The daily (yellow), monthly (blue) and monthly smoothed (red) sunspot numbers since 1994, together with predictions for 12 months ahead:

SM (red dots) : classical prediction method, based on an interpolation of Waldmeier's standard curves;

CM (red dashes) : combined method (due to K. Denkmayr), a regression technique coupling a dynamo-based estimator with Waldmeier's idea of standard curves.
