Main actors in astronomy research in the country  There are 7 Research Institutes in the structure of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NAS of Ukraine), 2 Research Institutes in the structure of the Ministry of Education and Science, Youth and Sport of Ukraine (MESYS of Ukraine); 15 astronomical observatories and Departments in the structure of the Universities of the MESYS of Ukraine; 1 Private Astronomical Observatory play a main role in the development and teaching Astronomy in Ukraine.
The XPM Catalog  Absolute proper motions of 280 million stars distributed all over the sky without gaps in the magnitude range 10m < V <20m on the basis of combined data from 2MASS and USNO-A2.0 catalogues.
MAO NASU Plate Archive   Digital archive of MAO NAS of Ukraine (GPA) comprises data of about 26 thousands of direct photographic plates, obtained with 14 instruments in 9 observational sites, and more than 2000 digital images of different resolution available via GPA search pages.
Mykolaiv AO Plate Archive   Digital archive of Mykolaiv Aastronomical Observatory (MykAO) includes astronomical data obtained during observations with photo plates and CCD frames. The digitization of the archive is near its completion. Digitized images are available via a web browser and Aladin.
AO LNU Plate Archive   Astronomical Observatory of Lviv National University (AO LNU) is the owner of valuable archive that stores approximately 8 000 of photographic plates from 1939, including nearly 6 000 direct images of the northern sky. The archive is partly digitized and images are available via the joint search pages of AO LNU and MAO NASU.
IRA UTR-2 catalogue of RS   The very-low frequency sky survey of discrete sources has been obtained in the Institute of Radio Astronomy of the Ukrainian National Academy of Sciences (Kharkov, Ukraine) with the UTR-2 radio telescope at a number of the lowest frequencies used in contemporary radio astronomy within the range from 10 to 25 MHz.
Mykolaiv AO stellar catalogues   27 astrometric stellar catalogues of Mykolaiv Aastronomical Observatory (MykAO) in VOTable format are available for downloading
AO KNU Historic Plate Archive   AO KNU glass collection contains about 20 thousand photographic plates. Historical part of the archive was received during 1898-1946 and now is being digitized.

Find datasets from thousands of astronomical collections known to the VO and over wide areas of the sky. This includes important collections from archives around the world. Feedback on your experience with the tool is appreciated -- please send your comments, suggestions, and questions to the VAO Help Desk.
US VAO Cross-Comparison Tool 
Perform fast positional cross-matches between an input table of up to 1 million sources and common astronomical source catalogs, such as 2MASS, SDSS DR7 and USNO-B. Feedback on your experience with the tool is appreciated -- please send your comments, suggestions, and questions to the VAO Help Desk.
VOPlot v1.8 Beta 
VOPlot v1.8Beta includes many enhancements and bug fixes. To name a few v1.8Beta supports multi-grid plots for 2D Scatter-Plot which allows the user to have multiple plots having grid size from 1x1 to 3x3 in a single window. Paginated view is added to see data in tabular format which allows user to navigate systematically. Provision to label Lat/Long lines is also added. Users can now plot a cumulative histogram for all histogram types. VOPlot 1.8Beta shows the metadata of a FITS file instantaneously while the actual loading happens in background. VOPlot v1.8Beta also provides better handling of "faulty data" while parsing an ASCII file.

 Dubov Emil Ekhimovich 

General data:

20.07.1921 - 12.04.1992

Place of birth: Gomel city, Gomel Province, Belarusian SSR

Studied in: M. V. Lomonosov Moscow State University (1945-1950); V. I. Lenin Moscow State Pedagogical Institute (since 1990 Moscow State Pedagogical University) (1938-1939); Moscow State University (since 1940 M. V. Lomonosov Moscow State University) (1939-1939);

Key interests: solar photosphere and chromosphere, astrophysics, solar physics. PhD Thesis: Features of internal movements and glow of calm prominences (1957 ); ScD Thesis: The structure of the chromosphere and some issues of solar activity in the chromosphere (1967 );


He was born on July 20, 1921 in Gomel city Gomel Province of Byelorussian SSR. The father is an employee, the mother is a doctor. In 1928 the family moved to Uzbekistan. In 1938 he graduated from school G2 in Tashkent and entered the Moscow State Pedagogical Institute named after VI Lenin. The following year he transferred to the physics department of Moscow State University and in the same year was drafted into the ranks of the Workers and peasants Red Army. During 1940-1941 he was a cadet of the Red Banner Military Aviation School of Communications. During the Great Patriotic War, which was part of World War II, he was a radio mechanic for assault regiments. He has medals "For Victory over Germany in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945" and "For the Liberation of Prague".

In 1950 he graduated from the Faculty of Physics of M. V. Lomosov Moscow State University with a degree in astrophysics, recovering after demobilization in 1945.

In 1951 he was admitted to the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory in the Department of Solar Physics (According to other sources, in 1952 he worked at the Simeiz base). He began his career as an astronomer as a junior researcher.

In 1957 he defended his dissertation "Features of internal movements and the glow of calm prominences".

In 1962 he received the title of senior researcher.

In 1967 he received the title of Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, defending his dissertation "The structure of the chromosphere and some issues of solar activity in the chromosphere".

During 1976-1988 he worked as a senior researcher, head of the solar activity group of the World Data Center of the Interdepartmental Geophysical Committee.

He is a member of the International Astronomical Union.

He died on April 12, 1992.

He studied the solar chromosphere and issues of magnetic activity, performed a number of experimental and theoretical works. He improved the coronograph and devices for observing chromospheric flashes, developed a method of analysis of the solar spectrum to determine the content of lithium in the atmosphere and sunspots, the presence of other elements in the spectra of spots. He studied hydrodynamic processes, in particular the structure of the gas flow behind the shock wave front, conducted a series of laboratory experiments on the shock tube. Theoretical works are devoted to the problems of energy balance in the chromosphere, heating mechanisms, the formation of chromospheric flashes, turbulence in solar prominences.

During the International Geophysical Year E. E. Dubov coordinated observations of chromospheric flares at the country's observatory. In the Geophysical Committee he worked on the problems of the impact of solar activity on the Earth, on the creation of an information database on solar activity for international data exchange.

He has published about 100 scientific papers, several reviews and popular articles.

E. E/ Dubov is the editor of the translations of the book "Physics of the Solar Chromosphere", a collection of works of the IV Symposium on Space Gas Dynamics.
