Abstract: The Solar Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (SUIT) is an instrument on-board Aditya-L1 mission of ISRO that will measure and monitor the solar radiation emitted in the near ultraviolet wavelength range (200–400 nm). SUIT will simultaneously map the photosphere and chromosphere of the Sun using 11 filters sensitive to different wavelengths and covering different heights in the solar atmosphere and help us understand the processes involved in the transfer from mass and energy from one layer to the other. SUIT will also allow us to measure and monitor spatially resolved solar spectral irradiance that governs the chemistry of oxygen and ozone in the stratosphere of the Earth’s atmosphere. This is central to our understanding of Sun–climate relationship.
