Abstract

The history of spectroscopy is reviewed with particular reference to the observation and identification of the Fraunhofer lines in the solar spectrum. The contributions of Joseph von Fraunhofer, H. A. Rowland, and Charlotte E. Moore are discussed. The observational material is reviewed and includes the ultraviolet solar spectra obtained from rockets and from Skylab.
