High-resolution ground measurements of the IR spectra of solar radiation


A new ground-based spectral complex for high-resolution measurements of the solar radiation spectra with a Bruker IFS-125 Fourier spectrometer is described. The main characteristics of the complex are presented. The examples of the measured solar radiation spectra in different IR ranges, as well as examples of the determination of the HF total content in the St. Petersburg region in January 2009 are given.
