Abstract : Photoabsorption cross sections for nitrogen and oxygen atoms were computed using the method of Burgess and Seaton (Burgess, A. and Seaton, M. F., 'A General Formula for the Calculation of Photo-ionization Cross Sections,' Monthly Notices Royal Astronautical Soc., V. 120, 1960, p. 9). Results are presented for the radiative recombination of singly ionized nitrogen and oxygen applicable for equilibrium air, for chemical nonequilibrium with internal equilibrium, and internal nonequilibrium.
