Baseline Products: Solar Flux EUV

Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) radiation has major impacts on the ionosphere.  An excess can result in radio blackouts of terrestrial High Frequency (HF) communications. Large solar flares increase the EUV energy deposited in the earth’s upper atmosphere (thermosphere) which causes increased atmospheric drag on satellites in Low Earth Orbit (LEO). This EUV product will provide improved coverage of these important wavelengths and information that will aid in preserving ground-based radio communications and navigation systems, as well as satellite orbits.
