[John D Fix; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.]. Abstract. Observations of the diffuse EUV background towards different directions using the spectrometers aboard the Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer satellite (EUVE) have been combined into a spectrum from Å to Å and represent an effective exposure of 18 million by: The first useful estimates of the cosmic diffuse EUV background below Å were obtained with an EUV telescope flown on the Apollo-Soyuz mission.

These data were also obtained with a broadband filter, but they had an important advantage over previous results, in that a small field of view was employed and a very extensive data set was obtained.

We have reanalysed the UVX measurements of the surface brightness of the diffuse ultraviolet background above b = 40 using the dust-scattering model of Onaka & Kodaira (), which explicitly.

The dense cloud core, where the visual extinction is A_v >obscures the background diffuse FUV radiation, while a scattered FUV radiation is seen in. The Importance of the Diffuse Ultraviolet Background. There are two reasons why diffuse emission in this narrow band is of great importance.

The first is that a host of disparate, quite unconnected emission sources are either known to exist, or might exist, which could contribute to this diffuse background. Diffuse Infrared Background Experiment (DIRBE) was an experiment on NASA's COBE mission, to survey the diffuse infrared sky.

Measurements were made with a reflecting telescope with 19 cm diameter aperture. The goal was to obtain brightness maps of the universe at ten frequency bands ranging from the near to far infrared ( to micrometer). Also, linear polarization was measured at THE DIFFUSE ULTRAVIOLET BACKGROUND AND ITS RELATION TO NEUTRAL HYDROGEN COLUMN DENSITY by The diffuse ultraviolet background radiation, in contrast, is that ultraviolet Using data obtained with the wide-field ultraviolet spectrometer aboard.

Apollo ULTRASAT (Ultraviolet Transient Astronomy Satellite) is an astronomical mini-satellite whose unprecedentedly large field of view, square degrees, will detect and monitor transient astronomical events in the near-ultraviolet (– nm) spectral region.

ULTRASAT will observe a large patch of sky, alternating every six months between the southern and northern hemisphere.

Given the number and diversity of diffuse interstellar bands (DIBs) in the optical, we might expect many similar features in the satellite UV. However. despite considerable effort over the years, analysis of data from both Copernicus ana IUE (resolutions of 12 and 25 km/s, respectively) have produced very little in the way of convincing results Author: Jason A.

Diffuse fraction for the UVB wave band was defined as the mean of the,and nm wave band measurements. Diffuse fraction for the ultraviolet-A (UVA).

The authors compared auroral images, obtained by both cameras of the Viking Ultraviolet Imager during April and early Maywith simultaneous measurements of electron precipitation from the DMSP F7 and HiLat satellites at low altitudes above the auroral.

Figure 2 – The percentage diffuse UVA radiation in the (a) morning, (b) noon and (c) afternoon. For the majority of the cases, the percentage diffuse UV ery and UVA are higher in the tree shade compared to the respective diffuse irradiance percentages in the full sun.

At noon, there is a better defined separation between the diffuse erythemal UV in the tree shade compared to the diffuse.

The potential for UV satellite observations of atmospheric aerosol, including volcanic ash, was first realized in the late s, using data from the Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) instrument (Hsu et al., ; Herman et al., ; Krotkov et al., ; Seftor et al., ; Torres et al., ).

However, the obvious drawback of the UV Cited by: 4. I think science has become stuck in the rut of Big Bang thinking. There is a diffuse ultraviolet background, a diffuse X-ray background, a diffuse gamma ray.

A third class of ultraviolet source is the simple plasma for which the necessary atomic or molecular data are known. For example, a high-temperature (∼20, K), wall-stabilized, hydrogen arc is a source of known spectral radiance in the air ultraviolet from to nm, given the continuum emission coefficient and the plasma length [25, 26].

DIRBE (Diffuse Infrared Background Experiment) - Infrared absolute sky brightness maps in the wavelength range to microns were obtained to carry out a search for the cosmic infrared background (CIB). The CIB was originally detected in the two longest DIRBE wavelength bands, and microns, and in the short-wavelength end of the FIRAS spectrum.

Climate modification by stratospheric SO2 injections, to form sulfate aerosols, may alter the spectral and angular distributions of the solar ultraviolet and visible radiation that reach the Earth’s surface, with potential consequences to environmental photobiology and photochemistry.

We used modeling results from the CESM1(WACCM) stratospheric aerosol geoengineering large ensemble (GLENS Cited by: 3. These relationships may be modified, however, by cloud cover and other factors. From satellite data sampled between and it has been determined that annual sunburning (or "erythemal") UV radiation levels increased by ± 3% at 60ºN and ± % at 40ºN per decade.
