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: http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/data/data.html Mirror archives are available at: SOHO Archive at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK.: http://trace.solararchive.rl.ac.uk/soho/ SOHO Archive at the Institut d'Astrophysique Spatiale, France: http://idc-medoc.ias.u-psud.fr/ SOHO Archive at Osservatorio Astronomico di Torino, Torino, Italy: http://solar.to.astro.it/
