Solar EUV and UV spectral atlases online

SOHOSUMER EUV Solar Spectral Atlas

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, "The 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 for more information.
