Handbook of geophysics and space environments by U.S. Air Force Geophysics Laboratory( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fourth edition of the Air Force Handbook of Geophysics and the Space Environment has been completely revised. It begins with chapters on the sun and its emissions, then treats the earth's magnetic field and the radiation belts, and follows with chapters on the ionosphere and the aurora. The subject of electrical charging of space vehicles has been of special concern to the Air Force and has been included to aid the designers interested in that problem. The next group of chapters deals with properties of the atmosphere, and the handbook concludes with chapters on the earth sciences and infrared astronomy. Keywords: Geophysics; Sun; Solar wing; Solar irradiance; Radiation belts; Ionosphere; Aurora; Air glow; Density; Temperature; Pressure; Winds; Earth atmosphere; Gravity; Geodesy; Infrared astronomy

Atmospheric transmittance/radiance : computer code LOWTRAN 6 by F. X Kneizys( Book )

4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This supplement lists the LOWTRAN 6 computer code for predicting atmospheric transmittance and the thermal radiation emitted by the atmosphere and earth from 350 to 40,000 per cm at a spectral resolution of 20 per cm. The program is based on the LOWTRAN 5 (1980) computer code. Solar/lunar scattered radiation has ben added to the code, as well as a new spherical refractive geometry subroutine and an improved water vapor continuum model. Other modifications to the code include a wind-dependent maritime aerosol model, a vertical structure aerosol model, a cirrus cloud model, and a rain model. The computer code contains representative (geographical and seasonal) atmospheric models and representative aerosol models with an option to replace them with user-derived or measured values. The program can be run in one of three modes, namely, to compute only atmospheric transmittance, to compute atmospheric transmittance and radiance, or to compute atmospheric transmittance, atmospheric radiance, and scattered solar/lunar background radiance for a given slant path geometry. Two new programs now available with the LOWTRAN 6 package, the plot program and the filter function program, are listed in this supplement

Prediction of total electron content using the international reference ionosphere by L. F McNamara( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The International Reference Ionosphere (IRI) is a model of the ionosphere, based on experimental data, that has been proposed as a standard ionospheric model. As such, it should be tested extensively to determine its range of validity. One of the ways in which the electron density profile given by the IRI, especially above the peak of the F layer, can be tested is to compare calculated and observed values of total electron content (TEC). We have therefore studied the discrepancies between calculated and observed values of TEC recorded at 15 stations covering a wide range of longitudes and latitudes mainly in the northern hemisphere, and mainly for high levels of solar activity. We have found that the IRI produces reasonably accurate values of TEC at mid- and high-latitudes, but that if greatly underestimates the daytime values of TEC at low latitudes. We conclude therefore that the daytime electron density profile given by the IRI is reasonably accurate at mid- and high-latitudes; at least above the peak of the F2 layer. The situation at low latitudes clearly requires more work, and we have suggested two possible lines of study. The generally low discrepancies at night indicate that the nighttime electron density profiles given by the IRI correspond fairly closely to the actual profiles
