Scientific uses for an XUV (A < 3000 A) spectral flux monitor on the Solar Physics Spacelab and the performance requirements for these uses are defined for the disciplines of solar physics and aeronomy. The study emphasizes solar physics uses with particular emphasis on solar flares. It is concluded that: 1. An XUV monitor which meets the needs of solar physics will also be very useful for aeronomy. 2. The observation of solar flares is the scientific use of greatest potential. 3. The measurement of the XUV flux of a significant number of flares during a Spacelab mission requires a sensitivity of 0.1%. Some basic design questions posed by the results of the study are briefly discussed.
|Additional Information:||This study was undertaken at the suggestion and encouragement of Loren Acton and Jake Wolfson. Barry LaBonte was particularly helpful in pointing out key observational papers on the solar XUV spectrum. During the course of the study, I benefited from discussions with Dick Blake, Ken Dere, Dick Donnelly, Hugh Hudson, Gordon Hurford, Sharad Kane, Bob Kreplin and Bob Lin. This research was funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration through the Quick Response and Special Purpose Facility Definition Team for the Solar Physics Spacelab.|
