Solar EUV and UV spectral atlases online
The first EUV spectral atlas obtained with SUMER has been made
available on the Web. The atlas covers the spectral range 680 - 1600 Å
(340 - 800 Å in 2nd order). The SUMER spectrum, with all its details,
clearly demonstrates the strength of this instrument. The solar
spectrum below 1200 E is not very well known. Thus, the present
spectral atlas, and SUMER observations in general, represents a new
important diagnostic tool to study essential physical parameters of
the solar atmosphere.
The atlas has been published in a paper,
SUMER Spectral Atlas of Solar-Disk Features" by W. Curdt et al.,
in Astronomy & Astrophysics, 375, No. 2,
2001 August 4.

HRTS UV Solar Atlas
Through the generosity of Dr.
Pål Brekke of the
Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics at the University of Oslo, the
High Resolution Telescope and Spectrograph (HRTS) ultraviolet solar atlas is
now available on the Web. Click here
