New Measurement of the Vertical Atmospheric Density Profile From Occultations of the Crab Nebula With X-Ray Astronomy Satellites Suzaku and Hitomi

We present new measurements of the vertical density profile of the Earth s atmosphere at altitudes between 70 and 200 km, based on Earth occultations of the Crab Nebula observed with the X-ray Imaging Spectrometer onboard Suzaku and the hard X-ray Imager onboard Hitomi. X-ray spectral variation due to the atmospheric absorption is used to derive tangential column densities of the absorbing species, that is, N and O including atoms and molecules, along the line of sight. The tangential column densities are then inverted to ob ...
