The Lyman Alpha Line in Space

  • R. Tousey
Chapter

Абстрактный

L-a-линия водорода в межпланетном пространстве.Рассматривается характер водородной La-линии,, 1215.67Д j излучаемой солнцем, и ее влияние при поглощении ее в земной атмосфере. Исследованы следующие случаи: интенсивность, ее изменения при солнечных переменах, а также по солнечному диску; профиль линии, ее применение при определении теллурического и межпланетного водорода и при изучении атмосферы солнца; ее роль в образовании слоя -D; эффекты свечения ночного неба.

Abstract

The nature of the Lyman Alpha line of hydrogen, 1215. 67 Â, as emit - ted by the sun, and the effects produced by its absorption in the earth’s atmosphere are reviewed. Topics covered are: Intensity, its variation with solar conditions and over the solar disc; the line profile, its use in the determination of telluric and interplanetary hydrogen, and in studying the atmosphere of the sun; role inD-layer formation; airglow effects.

Résumé

La LaRaied’hydrogène en espace. Les observations du caractère de la Laraie d’hydrogène, 1215. 67 X, émise par le Soleil et son absorption dans l’atmosphère terrestre sont discutées. Les sujets suivants sont mis en évidence: l’intensité, sa variation avec les conditions solaires et à travers le disque; le profil de la raie, son utilisation pour la détermination d’hydrogène tellurique et interplanétaire et pour l’étude de l’atmosphère solaire; s-on rôle en formation de couche-D; les effets du ciel nocturne luminescent.
