Modelling of the Solar Extreme Ultraviolet Irradiance for Aeronomic Applications

Abstract

The “solar constant” S, which is the total solar irradiance over all wavelengths at the top of the Earth’s atmosphere (corrected to mean Sun-Earth distance) is not really constant. Since about a century some variability was felt to exist because of the observed climatological changes with the solar cycle of eleven years. Long series of high altitude (mountain top) measurements were performed to define the range of possible variation. When reevaluating1 the data collected from about 1908 through 1952 the variability of the “solar constant” S was found to ly below about ± 1%. The range of variability could not be identified more accurately in view of missing knowledge about the variability of radiation absorbing atmospheric constituents. Also it is quite difficult to hold the instrumental response to this radiation exactly constant on an almost secular scale.
