Abstract:

The penetration depth of solar extreme ultraviolet radiation from 1 to 1700A vertically incident on the earths atmosphere has been calculated. The model atmospheres used were Models 2, 5, and 9 of the 1965 CIRA atmospheres, which represent atmospheric conditions during low, moderate, and high solar activity, respectively. The results are presented as graphs of penetration depth attenuation of the radiation to 1e of its original intensity vs wavelength. Author
