Remote Sensing of Earth\textquoterights Limb by TIMED/GUVI: Retrieval of thermospheric composition and temperature

The Global Ultraviolet Imager (GUVI) onboard the Thermosphere-Ionosphere-Mesosphere Energetics and Dynamics (TIMED) satellite senses far ultraviolet emissions from O and N2 in the thermosphere. Transformation of far ultraviolet radiances measured on the Earth limb into O, N2, and O2 number densities and temperature quantifies these responses and demonstrates the value of simultaneous altitude and geographic information. Composition and temperature variations are available from 2002 to 2007 ...

Undulations on the equatorward edge of the diffuse proton aurora: TIMED/GUVI observations

Undulations on the equatorward edge of the diffuse proton aurora have been identified by using TIMED/GUVI auroral images in the far ultraviolet wavelengths. While undulations have been previously reported on the duskside (Lui et al., 1982), GUVI observations show the undulation also occurs in the dayside, nightside, and morningside. The GUVI proton auroral images provide direct optical evidence that the undulations occur in the proton aurora. It is also the first detection of the undulation in the dayside indicating stron ...

Far-ultraviolet signature of polar cusp during southward IMF Bz observed by TIMED/Global Ultraviolet Imager and DMSP

The coincident TIMED/Global Ultraviolet Imager (TIMED/GUVI) optical and DMSP particle observations have revealed new features of the optical signature of the polar cusp under a southward interplanetary magnetic field (IMF). We have found that cusp auroras usually take the shape of a thin arc with a width around 100\textendash200 km. This provides the first far-ultraviolet evidence of the narrow cusp under a southward IMF [

Nightside detached auroras due to precipitating protons/ions during intense magnetic storms

Nightside detached auroras (NDA) during intense magnetic storms are studied by using FUV image data from Thermosphere-Ionosphere-Mesosphere Energetics and Dynamics (TIMED)/Global Ultraviolet Imager (GUVI), Imager for Magnetopause-to-Aurora Global Exploration (IMAGE)/FUV, and particle data from DMSP/SSJ/4 instruments. We found that NDA are caused by proton/ion precipitation only. Thin arc-shaped NDA are very likely due to soft (\<1 keV) proton/ion precipitation. Thick or patch-shaped NDA are caused by energetic (\~10 ke ...

O/N 2 changes during 1\textendash4 October 2002 storms: IMAGE SI-13 and TIMED/GUVI observations

Thermospheric O/N2 column density ratios referenced at a N2 column density of 1017 cm-2 are obtained using the IMAGE SI-13 and TIMED/GUVI far-ultraviolet (FUV) dayglow data, AURIC simulation results, and MSIS86 model. Each of the magnetic storms occurring during a 4-day period (1\textendash4 October 2002) caused significant O/N2 depletion that was detected by both of the IMAGE SI-13 and GUVI instruments. The depletion extended down to latitudes of 10\textdegree and -5 ...

Double dayside detached auroras: TIMED/GUVI observations

On August 19, 2003, TIMED/GUVI detected, for the first time, two separated (double) dayside detached auroras (D-DDA) simultaneously in all the GUVI channels, 121.6 nm, 135.6 nm, LBHS, and LBHL. The D-DDA was located at magnetic latitudes around -57\textdegree and -63\textdegree (L shell 3.4 and 4.9) in the 0900\textendash1030 MLT region. The high-latitude part of the D-DDA is much brighter than the low-latitude part. DMSP particle observation indicates that the source of the D-DDA is energetic (\~10 keV) precipitating pro ...

GUVI: a hyperspectral imager for geospace

The Global Ultraviolet Imager (GUVI) is an imaging spectrometer on the NASA TIMED spacecraft which was launched on December 7, 2001. This instrument produces a far ultraviolet (FUV) data cube of spatial and spectral information at each step of a scan mirror - that scan mirror covers 140 deg in the cross track direction - a span that includes on limb. GUVI produces simultaneous monochromatic images at five "colors" (121.6 nm, 130.4 nm, 135.6 nm, and in broader bands at 140-150 nm and 165-180 nm) as its field of view is sca ...

The use of far ultraviolet remote sensing to monitor space weather

This paper discusses the connection between changes in Earth\textquoterights thermosphere and ionosphere induced by changes in the Earth\textquoterights local space environment (or \textquotedblleftspace weather\textquotedblright) and the phenomena observed in far ultraviolet images of the Earth. Two new experiments, the Global Ultraviolet Imager (GUVI) and the Special Sensor Ultraviolet Imager (SSUSI), will provide a new capability for monitoring changes in thermospheric composition and ionospheric density as they change ...

Optical Signature of Polar Cusp During Southward IMF Bz Observed by TIMED/GUVI and DMSP

The GUVI instrument on board the TIMED satellite provides unique multi-wavelength observations of polar region emissions. In this study we focus on the identification of the polar cusp region during southward IMF conditions. Using simultaneous DMSP particle observations, the optical signatures and dynamics of the polar cusp region are investigated. We will address which of the five GUVI wavelengths can best be used for optical identification of the cusp precipitation by comparing images of various wavelengths. These new G ...

Validation of remote sensing products produced by the Special Sensor Ultraviolet Scanning Imager (SSUSI): a far UV-imaging spectrograph on DMSP F-16

Operational sensors are designed and intended to reliably produce the measurements needed to develop high-value key environmental parameters. The Special Sensor Ultraviolet Spectrographic Imager (SSUSI) is slated to fly on the next five Defense Meteorological Satellite Program launches (beginning with the launch of F16 in Fall 2001). SSUSI will routinely produce maps of ionospheric and upper atmospheric composition and image the aurora. In this paper we describe these products and our validation plans and the process thro ...

Remote sensing of the nighttime ionosphere with the TIMED Global Ultraviolet Imager

The Global Ultraviolet Imager (GUVI) aboard the TIMED spacecraft monitors ultraviolet radiation from the terrestrial atmosphere in five spectral regions. Measurements of 1356-angstrom radiation on the Earth\textquoterights limb are part of this dataset. The primary source of this 1356-angstrom radiation on the night side is the recombination of molecular oxygen ions and electrons. In this work, we present a method for inferring vertical electron density profiles and total electron content (TEC) from the GUVI night-side li ...

On-orbit calibration of the Special Sensor Ultraviolet Scanning Imager (SSUSI): a far-UV imaging spectrograph on DMSP F-16

The Special Sensor Ultraviolet Spectrographic Imager (SSUSI) is currently slated for launch on the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) F-16 in November 2001. This instrument consists of a scanning imaging spectrograph (SIS) whose field-of-view is scanned from horizon-to-horizon and a nadir-looking photometer system (NPS). It will provide operational information about the state of the atmosphere above 100 km. The unique problems incurred by the observational requirements (e.g. that we be able to make daytime an ...
