CORONAS-F Tracking


Solar UV spectrophotometer

Fedorov Institute of Applied Geophysics

Principal Investigators:
Dr. A.A.Nusinov

Scientific goals

Experiment is aimed at monitoring of the integrated solar UV radiation in HLα in order to:
  • investigate the possibility of forecasting of the high radiation level events in the Earth's space environment during solar flares.
  • investigate correlation between the UV radiation flux and solar activity cycle parameters and possibility to predict the cycle amplitude 2-3 years in advance.
  • investigate interrelation between the fluxes of solar electromagnetic emission of various wavelengths to be used in standard solar radiation models

    Technical parameters

    The VUSS-L device is designed to measure solar UV radiation in the vicinity of the hydrogen resonance line HLα (121.6 nm) within the 120 nm bandwidth.
