Theory of planetary atmospheres : an introduction to their physics and chemistry by Joseph W Chamberlain( )

31 editions published between 1978 and 1990 in English and held by 3,276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a book on the entire field of planetary atmospheres - meteorology, photochemistry, ionospheres, radiative and covective transport of heat, aeronomy, and remote observations (i.e, planetary astronomy)
Physics of the aurora and airglow by Joseph W Chamberlain( )

21 editions published between 1960 and 1995 in English and Italian and held by 1,875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Physics of the aurora and airglow is a diversified subject, and this characteristic is, I think, the secret of its charm. But it is growing up in an age when physicists must necessarily specialize in narrow fields of interest. The advantage gained by a scientist applying his particular competence to the aurora or airglow is then partly offset by his lack of familiarity with other areas of the topic. The field is so broad that it is most difficult for him to learn the whole subject while still pursuing and keeping abreast in his own specialty. Now you know my main incentive for writing this book: I wanted to have some familiarity with all aspects of aurora and airglow, and I felt that many others must find themselves in a similar situation

On Seeding the D-Region with Cesium( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

If 1000 kg (7500 moles) of cesium were deposited over a 10-km height interval centered about 80-km altitude, the cloud would spread within 1/4 hour to a 50-km radius, leaving a mean density of (Cs) = 6 x 10 to the 7th power/cc. Chemical reactions with oxygen would consume about 25% of the cesium, but most of it would remain in atomic form. Solar ionization is very effective, and Cs(+) will not transfer its charge to atmospheric constituents, which leads to nearly 100% ionization of the free Cs and to free-electron densities of nearly 3 x 10 to the 7th power/cc in less than an hour after a daytime release. Although the ionization will decrease rapidly at night, it will reappear again at sunrise, with electron densities of the order of 100,000/cc persisting for days. Disturbed radio propagation in VHF, and especially HF, would be present for days, possibly over distances up to several thousand kilometers. Seeding the D region with substantial quantities of cesium would provide a valuable diagnostic tool for investigation of the local atmospheric dynamics, but it could also produre undesirable effects on normal radio communications
