Observations of Solar Ultraviolet Radiation
In view of the fact that the subject of his lectures is well covered by a number of recent review articles including one by himself, the author restricts himself to a brief discussion of the main scientific objectives of present-day solar UV observations. The most important instrumental problems are reviewed. The opinion is stated that several comparatively simple satellites seem to be better suited for investigating the solar UV spectrum than a very complex spacecraft carrying many sophisticated experiments.
