Studies aiming at modelling the transfer of the solar radiation through the atmosphere require as main parameter the solar spectrum incident on the top of the atmosphere, for instance to calculate the surface UV radiation using satellite sensors. Similarly, investigations combining solar radiation measurements with radiative transfer calculations to retrieve atmospheric constituents need an accurate representation of the extraterrestrial solar spectrum.
