Abstract : Ground-based photometric measurements of auroral and airglow intensities, motions, and spatial and temporal PSD's (power spectral densities) were made at Chatanika, Alaska in support of DNA/AFGL rocket and satellite experiments during the interval September 1977 through January 1979. The latitudinal variations of auroral, airglow,and ionospheric parameters were monitored using a multicolor, meridional scanning photometer. Horizontal motions and scale sizes were monitored using two multiple beam photometers. Data obtained in support of four DNA/AFGL rocket experiments, Field Widened Interferometer, WIDEBAND Multi, SWIR/SWIR/TMA, and EXCEDE II, are presented herein. Data synopsis sheets describing the data obtained for a number of WIDEBAND satellite passes are also included.
