Solar EUV Radiation

NSSDCA ID: 1974-055A-04

Mission Name: Aeros-B
Principal Investigator:Dr. Gerhard Schmidtke


This experiment consisted of a grating spectrometer, a solar collimator, and a photomultiplier. It operated in two channels, 150 to 510 A and 300 to 1070 A, and measured the flux and spectral distribution of the solar EUV radiation and its temporal and spatial variations. An onboard calibration device was included. A description of the instrument can be found in G. Schmidtke et al., J. Geophys., v. 40, n. 5, p. 577, 1974. NSSDC has all the useful data that exist from this investigation.
