Summary
Abstract: The purpose of the UltraViolet Coronograph Spectrometer (UVCS) on the Solar
and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) is to provide a detailed description of the
extended solar corona that can be used to address a broad range of scientific
questions regarding the nature of the solar corona and the generation of the
solar wind.

UVCS makes measurements of the solar corona between 2 and 10 solar radii from
sun center with high spectral and spatial resolution. From the spectroscopic
measurements at ultraviolet wavelengths, the
- proton velocity distribution,
- proton outflow velocity,
- electron temperature, and
- O VI, Si XII, and Mg X outflow velocities and densities

can be determined. Information about the

- O VI, Si XII, and Mg X velocity distributions,
- electron density, and
- minor ions densities

can also be learned.

All SOHO/UVCS data are available from the public SOHO data archive:
