Abstract. A comprehensive model is developed to study the 7320 Å dayglow emission. The emission profiles are obtained with the help of the recently developed Solar2000 EUV (Extreme Ultra Violet) flux model. These emission profiles are used to construct the morphology of this emission between equator and 45° N in the Northern Hemisphere. A span of five years (2001–2005) is chosen to study the effect of solar activity on the morphology of this emission. The morphology is studied on 3 April which lies under the equinox conditions. In 2001, the solar F10.7 index on the chosen date was as high as 223.1 which is the case of solar maximum. It is found that the intensity of this emission does not vary linearly with the F10.7 solar index. The morphology shows that the region of maximum emission expands towards the higher latitudes as the F10.7 index increases.
