Paper Abstract

Spectrometric observations (1100 A to 1800 A) of the ultraviolet radiance of Earth's atmosphere have been obtained by the Horizon Ultraviolet Program (HUP) sensor from Space Shuttle altitude at two different points in the solar cycle. Most of the radiance measurements were made during horizon scans of the earthlimb or while the HUP field of view was directed toward nadir. The expected variation of dayglow radiance with solar zenith angle (SZA) in the several spectral bands was observed. These results compare favorably to the predictions of a preliminary version of the Atmospheric Ultraviolet Radiance Integrated Code (AURIC).
