Photodissociation rates for minor species in the earth's atmosphere by R. D Harris( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photodissociation rates per molecule for ten minor atmospheric species have been computed as functions of wavelength, altitude, and solar zenith angle for medium solar activity. Calculations for wavelengths from the onset of dissociation to 1000 A and for altitudes below 110 km for CO, CO₂, CH₄, C₂H₄, NO, NO₂, N₂O, H₂O, H₂O₂, HNO₃, and the major species O₃, and O₂ are reported. Photodissociation calculations depend upon the atmospheric O₂ and O₃ absorption but are independent of specific minor species densities

Species densities in the lower thermosphere compatible with the U.S. Standard Atmosphere by G. W Adams( Book )

3 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

O₂, N₂, and O number density profiles have been constructed in the 80-120 km region compatible with the U. S. Standard Atmosphere, 1962, and the U. S. Standard Atmosphere Supplements, 1966. Profiles have been constructed at 15, 30, 45, and 60°N, for winter, summer, and spring/fall

Instrumentation of small rockets for polar cap absorption studies by J. C Haslett( Book )

3 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The instrumentation of small sounding rockets for scientific experiments in the region from 50 km to approximately 110 km is described. These particular rockets were developed to measure the diurnal variations of proton spectra and electron densities during solar proton events. Seven rockets were flown with each carrying a three-channel proton spectrometer and a three-frequency Faraday rotation experiment. The proton spectrometer and Faraday rotation experiment are discussed in some detail.Because of difficulties experienced with the telemetry, considerable telemetry development had to be done. Although the telemetry was developed specifically for these rockets, it is of general interest and is described. In particular the report mentions modifications of the rocket antenna system, the voltage controlled oscillators, and the modification of a parametric amplifier for use with the Ft. Churchill range telemetry.Block diagram and photographs are included in the text, while detailed schematics of the pertinent electronics are included in an appendix
Preliminary ionospheric partial-reflection measurements at Brighton, Colorado on 9 January 1981 by R. Michael Jones( Book )

Solar proton monitoring system by G. W Adams( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A real-time solar-proton monitoring system with ground-based sensors is located in Alaska and other parts of the United States, Greenland, and Canada. A computer in Anchorage, Alaska, interrogates the sensors, processes the data, and transmits the information via teletype to the Solar Forecast Center in Boulder, Colorado. This report describes the physics of the system, i.e., the characteristics of the events (PCA's, auroras, SID's, REP's, and solar noise bursts), how the sensors (riometers, VLF phase and amplitude, forward scatter, neutron monitors, and magnetometers) respond to these events, how these characteristics are programmed to detect the different events, and how the sensor readings are used to obtain information about solar protons. A second report will give details on a set of rocket experiments to be fired into PCA events

Measurements of Mesospheric Winds and Waves( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An imaging Doppler interferometer (IDI) radar was operated to analyze the characteristics of radar scattering in terms of a number of discrete scattering points, also referred to as multiple scattering centers, IDI/MSC for short. For each of these points the three-dimensional location, radial velocity, and amplitude and phase are determined, similar to the output of meteor radars. The conventional Groves' meteor wind radar analysis was applied to the scattering points to produce the mean apparent motions over the height range from 70 to 110 km. The mean apparent motion of the scattering centers is the quantity that would correspond to the neutral atmosphere wind or bulk motion if the scattering points are physical entities (such as turbulent eddies) whose motions are determined solely by advection. This is the quantity which is treated as the 'wind' in the analysis and which should be compared to the wind measurements as deduced from the other methods employed during this campaign. Extreme care must be used in interpreting the velocities measured by partial reflection radars as winds
Measurement of Horizontal Structures and Wavelengths (5-500 km) in Mesospheric Gravity Waves, Tides and Winds. Workshop and Design Study( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

It is well known that monostatic radars are poor meteor-wind radars. It has been suggested, however, that an outboard receiving site, configured as an interferometer, could receive pulses scattered by meteor trails from the ST's beams, resolve the geometry, and thus measure winds in the 80 - 110 km region. This approach, dubbed MENTOR (Meteor Echoes; No Transmitter, Only Receivers), would be an inexpensive way to add mesospheric capabilities to ST radars. The cost of a MENTOR receiver system is expected to be a small fraction of the cost of either a meteor-wind system or an ST radar. In addition, locations such as Colorado and Pennsylvania that have networks of ST radars could use a single MENTOR receiving site to determine winds above all ST radars within a several hundred kilometer radius. This could make possible the measurement of gravity-wave phenomena over much larger horizontal distances that can be accomplished from a single site. A MENTOR workshop was held 21 May 1984. It was concluded that the MENTOR approach in Colorado (or anyplace else with a network of MST radars) would yield important new information about winds in the mesosphere and about mesospheric gravity waves with horizontal scales of 50-500km.
