The Optical Programme of the Culgoora Solar Observatory
Giovanelli, R. G.
Proceedings of the Astronomical Society of Australia, Volume 1, Issue 2, pp. 39-40
Publication Date:
Bibliographic Code:


The Sun being a highly ionized gas, the basic physical quantities most needed for understanding solar phenomena are temperature, pressure (or density), velocity and magnetic field, together with their variations in space and time. The general aim at Culgoora is to secure observations from which these quantities may be derived (insofar as is practicable) simultaneously over extended solar regions. To do this has involved the development and use of filters of high spectral and spatial resolution, the study of atmospheric seeing and ways of securing high-resolution observations, and the study of methods of analysing observations to yield the physical quantities needed.
