BackForward Variable: Solar X-ray flux spectrum

Full name Solar X-ray flux spectrum
Definition Energy spectrum of the X-ray flux integrated over the solar disk.
Measuring Units W·m-2·Á-1 Uncertainty Units %
Horizontal Res Units Vertical Res Units
Stability Units % (Stability /decade)


Comment: Typical measurements include the 0.1-0.8 nm and the 0.05-0.4 nm wavelength bands. Used to track solar eruptions and estimate ionospheric radio absorption..
