Solar UV spectrophotometer
Fedorov Institute of Applied Geophysics
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
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.
