Abstract
Accurate measurements of the Sun's extreme ultraviolet (EUV) emission are of major importance in aeronomical studies of the Earth's upper atmosphere and for studies of the Sun's outer atmosphere, where the radiation originates in the tenuous, high-temperature chromosphere and corona. Current levels of calibration accuracy of space instrumentation used to observe this radiation and accuracies desired in the future are discussed. Several suggestions are made for methods that can provide approximate recalibrations of instruments in orbit using the radiation from the Sun itself.
