This volume is dedicated to the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), which was launched 11 February 2010. The articles focus on the spacecraft and its instruments: the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA), the Extreme Ultraviolet Variability Experiment (EVE), and the Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager (HMI). Articles within also describe calibration results and data processing pipelines that are critical to understanding the data and products, concluding with a description of the successful Education and Public Outreach activities. This book is geared towards anyone interested in using the unprecedented data from SDO, whether for fundamental heliophysics research, space weather modeling and forecasting, or educational purposes. Previously published in Solar Physics journal, Vol. 275/1-2, 2012.... direct solar radio emissions when SDO is directly in line with the Sun and the ground station, and equipment problems (112.5 hours per year). ... HMI data to the JSOC to allow HMI to construct 95% of anticipated Dopplergrams with 99% of the pixels containing science data. ... As of 1 April 2011 the ground system is forwarding 99.97% of the transmitted Instrument Multiplexing Protocol Data Units (IM_PDUs) to ... As anticipated, the eclipse seasons suffer from the greatest loss of data.
