Abstract:

A compilation of papers is presented reporting the preparation, observations, data reduction and interpretation of upper atmosphere experiments. The general objective of these experiments is a study of the dynamics, transport processes, state, and composition of natural and artificial perturbations of the upper atmosphere. For these studies, techniques are employed wherein various chemicals are released in the upper atmosphere from rocket-borne containers, followed by observations from the ground of the effects resulting from the release.
