[en] The auroral emissions that resulted from the series of solar particle events and magnetic storms during 14-24 April 2002 provide an excellent data set for the cross-comparison of the IMAGE/FUV and TIMED/GUVI auroral imagers. The IMAGE/FUV instrument comprises the SI spectral imager (121.8 nm and 135.6 nm) and the WIC imaging photometer (LBH) and observes the entire Earth from high Earth orbit. The TIMED/GUVI spectral imager (121.6 nm, 130.4 nm, 135.6 nm, LBH short, and LBH long) scans a nadir-to-limb swath from low Earth orbit. Although there is a large difference in spatial resolution, preliminary comparison of simultaneously-observed diffuse auroral emissions indicates fairly good agreement between the calibrated brightnesses determined for common spectral features. We will present a detailed simulation of one or more of the April 2002 events as seen by each imager to determine if a single description of the auroral precipitation can self-consistently account for the proton- and electron-generated FUV emissions observed from the two spacecraft.
