Abstract:

Past and future Firefly experiments the release of chemicals into the upper atmosphere are further analyzed. The initial expansion to ambient pressure of explosive releases is treated by Brodes blast wave theory. Upper atmosphere wind, wind shear, molecular and turbulent diffusion studies are summarized. The propagation models of artificial electron clouds are reexamined. Missile trail phenomena and their relationship to some Firefly experiments are discussed. Computer solutions are obtained for diffusion-chemical kinetics equations relating to various releases. Author
