This Directory of Monitoring Sun-Earth Environment (MONSEE) Stations contains detailed information about a number of worldwide continuously monitoring stations in the network of solar-terrestrial physics disciplines. Most of the information comes from the 'Questionnaries for MONSEE Station Directory' which were returned to the International Council of Scientific Unions' (ICSU) Special Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics Secretary. This directory is intended to bridge the gap between the availability of continuously monitored solar-terrestrial data and the awareness of possible users of these data. The structured format of each station entry provides some degree of homogeneity, and when familiar with this format, certain information can be located at a glance. Some station entries are more detailed than others, but all identify an additional source for more information about the station and the data. A total of 1032 individual entries are included in this directory covering the following disciplines of solar-terrestrial physics monitoring: solar and interplanetary phenomena, ionospheric phenomena, flare-associated events, geomagnetic variations, aurora, cosmic rays, and airglow.

The solar-terrestrial environment is monitored by a wide variety of scientific sensors located throughout the world and on space platforms. This second edition of the Directory of Solar-Terrestrial Physics Monitoring Stations presents detailed information for 1163 sensors used to monitor this environment. The scientific disciplines covered are solar and interplanetary phenomena, ionospheric phenomena, flare-associated events, geomagnetic variations, aurora, cosmic rays, airglow, and miscellaneous related phenomena such as atmospheric ozone. The following summary station tables are also given: master station list, alternate name list, listing by subdiscipline, and a list of stations closed since the first directory was published in 1977. In addition, a status report summarizes the relative decrease in solar-terrestrial physics monitoring activities since 1976. Keywords: Solar-terrestrial physics; Solar phenomena; Solar activity; Cosmic rays; Aurora; Geomagnetic activity; Ionospheric phenomena; Solar-terrestrial data; Solar-terrestrial monitoring; Interplanetary phenomena; Solar flares; and Airglow.
