This Working Group was established at the 2012 IAU General Assembly. It has been set up to clarify the radio astronomy definition of continuum flux density in the case of wide-band radio telescope systems. The group will develop a future IAU resolution for the definition of continuum flux density to be used consistently in software for data processing and in publications.
