Abstract: ABSTRACT: The Magnesium II information is extracted daily from the GOME-2 1B granules, as soon as new solar radiance measurements are available. The product includes a 61-wavelength subset of the daily solar spectrum and a Mg II core-to-wing ratio for the spectrum. Our Mg II Index value is a simple ratio of the average of the irradiance measurements near three core wavelengths to the average of ... View entire text
