Abstract

This paper presents an overview of the principles of the study of planetary atmospheres at 
vacuum ultraviolet wavelengths. Ultraviolet (UV) remote sensing is a powerful technique for 
investigating the chemistry, dynamics, energetics, and composition of planetary 
atmospheres. In the last fifteen years optical aeronomy has undergone a profound change. 
The field has begun the transformation from initial spectroscopy, in which the radiating 
species and their signatures are identified, to remote sensing in which the signatures are ...
