ABSTRACT
We present here preliminary results of the analysis of 11 GALEX DIS observations from nearby
regions which are at medium latitude. We have estimated the error in the data of each of the
observations from its visits. Different components of diffuse UV radiation were quantified and
separated after removing the sources from each of the field. We then studied the dependencies of
these components to factors such as solar activity, sun angle and Infrared 100 micron intensity,
specific to each of these components.
INTRODUCTION
GALEX observations provide the highest spatial
resolution images of the diffuse UV background, with an
effective spatial resolution of about 5. 11 GALEX DIS
observations were taken (Table. 1) both in FUV (1350-
1750) and NUV (1750-2850) bands for the analysis
of diffuse UV radiation from the GALEX archive. These
