Paper Abstract

Spectral energy distribution of auroras at heights from 80 to 1000 km have been calculated on the base of global photometric model. It describes the processes of emission excitations by solar UV radiation and electron fluxes in auroral zone. This model deals with emissions from EUV to IR spectral regions (0.02 - 20 mcm) during night and day conditions. The main peculiarities of auroral spectra consist in spatial distribution of its components.
