Solar UV Monitor

NSSDCA ID: 1981-100A-05

Mission Name: SME
Principal Investigator:Dr. Charles A. Barth

Description

The objective of the Ultraviolet Solar Monitor Experiment was to monitor the incoming solar radiation to determine the effect on the ozone concentration. A dual-channel Ebert-Fastie spectrometer measured solar radiation at 1216 A and between 1600 and 3100 A with a resolution of 1 A. The look direction was 45 deg to the spacecraft axis of rotation. In the 3 am to 3 pm sun-synchronous orbit, the instrument scanned through the sun once per orbit. The full width at half maximum was 14 A. There were 512 grating steps per scan.
