Updated Area/Flux/Flux emergence rate graphs
Graphs have been cosine corrected and updated to include the flare times (for area) and flaring rate per 12 hours (for flux and flux emergence rate). It can be seen that flaring is most frequent when area and flux are large. In the flux plot we see the flaring rate increase as the flux increases and we then see the flaring rate die off again as flux disappears.
From the flux emergence rate we can see that there is a rapid flux emergence prior to flaring. As the flaring rate peaks, the flux emergence rate begins to fall away.
