Abstract:

The transport equations which describe irreversible processes in the very dilute, reacting, ionized gas mixture which comprises the upper atmosphere are derived. Thes equations have application in the description of the properties of the ambient atmosphere and in the determination of the effects of the passage of a traversing vehicle through the atmosphere. The intensity and frequency of the radiation emitted in the traversal of a vehicle through the upper atmosphere will be effected by the phenomena described. Author
