ROSAT Guest Observer Facility

What contaminating spectral features are present?


For absolute or diffuse spectra, the geocoronal oxygen line in dayside data is present. For 'polar' data (|latitude| < 30 degrees), auroral contamination can be present above 2 keV. Long-term enahancements can contribute significantly in the 1/4 keV band.
