SORCE Monitors Solar Variability during Record Solar Flares
The SORCE mission monitors solar variability to determine its impact on the Earth's climate. The X-ray photometer aboard SORCE observes the record-breaking solar flares in the Fall of 2003. The line graph shows the photometer's measured solar radiation flux in the 1-7 nanometer wavelength band (x-ray) measured in milliwatts per square meter. The ultraviolet (195 angstrom) imagery from SOHO/EIT (green) illustrates where the flares (the bright white spots) are located on the solar disk.
