(Received 13 November 2000 / Accepted 10 December 2001 )

UVSTAR, UltraViolet Spectrograph Telescope for Astronomical Research, operates in the 500-1250 Å wave-band at 1 to 3 Å resolution. Here we report on the EUV and FUV observations of the B2 II star Adara, the brightest EUV source in the sky, obtained by UVSTAR during the STS 69 and STS 95 missions. The discussion concerns 1) wavelength and flux calibration, 2) short term time variability of selected spectral features, 3) comparison with previous measurements in the EUV band and 4) comparison with model atmospheres.

Key words: stars: individual: $\epsilon$ CMa -- early-type -- oscillations -- ultraviolet: stars -- instrumentation: spectrographs  -- space vehicles

What is OpenURL?

The OpenURL standard is a protocol for transmission of metadata describing the resource that you wish to access.

An OpenURL link contains article metadata and directs it to the OpenURL server of your choice. The OpenURL server can provide access to the resource and also offer complementary services (specific search engine, export of references...). The OpenURL link can be generated by different means.

  • If your librarian has set up your subscription with an OpenURL resolver, OpenURL links appear automatically on the abstract pages.
  • You can define your own OpenURL resolver with your EDPS Account.
    In this case your choice will be given priority over that of your library.
  • You can use an add-on for your browser (Firefox or I.E.) to display OpenURL links on a page (see http://www.openly.com/openurlref/). You should disable this module if you wish to use the OpenURL server that you or your library have defined.
