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

An interpolation procedure for calculating atmospheric band aborptions from laboratory data by LeAnn Droppleman( 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

Reduction and Analysis of Natal Flight Data( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The (0-0) band of the infrared atmospheric system of molecular oxygen at 1.27 microns is a major feature of the atmospheric emission spectrum, both day and night. The emitting specis, 02(singlet Delta (g)), is closely associated with the ozone in the daytime and early evening. The production mechanism for the nighttime emission is not known. A rocket was launched about two hours after local sunset to observed the 02(singlet Delta (g)) emission from above. The resultant observations, while yielding only gross height resolution, did give an observations, of the o2 emission in a circle approximately 2000 km in diameter and covering approximately one hour and thirty minutes in local time and 22 degrees in latitude.

Measurement of Atomic Oxygen in the Mesosphere( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The oxidation rates of silver films by atomic oxygen and ozone have been examined and compared. The conductivities of the silver were measured as a function of the oxidation state. Several factors make the results of these measurements appear complex, and calibrations are necessary for atmospheric use. The apparent autocatalytic nature of the reaction and 'resistance coasting' are examined in terms of a plausible mechanism. The increase in mass is amenable to direct correlation and confirms an initial rate law which is first order in the oxidation component. It was concluded that silver films are good detectors for atomic oxygen, and that ozone would not interfere with this measurement above an altitude of 38 km

Infrared Radiance Model for the Aurorally Disturbed Atmosphere( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Recently, auroral observations have indicated the strong enhancement of certain infrared bands during periods of auroral activity. A theoretical model has been created in order to study the infrared processes associated with the aurora. The quantitative results of this study depend upon a thorough knowledge of the rates of all processes involved. Some of the rate constants are well known while for others only the crudest approximation is made. Qualitatively, however, results indicate that certain infrared bands of CO2, N2O, NO, and NO+ are strongly enhanced during periods of auroral activity. This is primarily the result of two basic energy exchange mechanisms. The energy deposited by the primary auroral electron flux goes into increasing the internal energy of N2, O2, and O. In addition to energetic auroral particles as an energy source, electric fields are also considered. Qualitatively the results are similar except that the energy tends to be deposited at altitudes somewhat higher than in direct precipitation processes. (Modified author abstract)
