This service computes the appropriate fluorescence efficiencies
(g-factors) and/or Haser fractions needed to take a molecular
flux measurement for a comet and derive a resulting production
rate. Five optical/near-UV species are currently supported:
OH, NH, CN, C2, C3.
There are three options for using this site. The list below provides a brief description of each option and a link to a more detailed description of the option.
To calculate values for a comet, select an option below:
compute Qs from Fluxes
