1/2 m 'White' Ebert-Fastie Spectrometer


The University of Tromsø (UiTø)

Scientific objectives
To measure the spectral character of the high latitude aurora and airglow for studies of atomic and molecular processes in the upper atmosphere. Support magnetospheric surveys by establishing incoming particle type and energy as a function of time.
