N° 10 -91370 Verrieres Le B [Plate 3] The most recent results on the e.u.v. continuous emission of the Sun are reviewed, and intercompared. They are discussed in terms of the distribution of temperature in the solar atmosphere particularly in view of determining more precisely the value of the temperature minimum. An attempt will be made to interpret the discrepancies which exist between the observations and the results deduced
