Solar UV Radiometer
Fedorov Institute of Applied Geophysics
Scientific goal of the experiment is to monitor solar UV radiation in HLα in order to:
- study the possibility of forecasting dangerous radiation levels in space environment resulting from the solar flares
- study the relationship between solar electromagnetic emission in various spectrum bands in order to develop model solar spectrums
- obtain data on the extreme solar UV radiation for the purpose of modelling the ionosphere and upper atmosphere of
Solar ultraviolet radiometer SUFR-Sp-K is used to measure variations of the integral
solar UV flux in several spectral bands ranging from 1 to 130 nm and to diagnose parameters of the solar
flares in spectral band 0.1-130 nm and dynamic range 0.1-30 erg cm-2c-1.
The device is also used for monitoring of the important element of space weather - geoeffective solar radiation.
