The results of mass spectrometer measure ments on irradiated gases are included of particular importance in these results is the identification of O4 as the dominant positive ion in O2 and 2-1, N2-O2 mixtures at least at pressures between 1 and 10 Torr. The results of electron loss rate measurements in N2-02 mixture are presented. Some atmospheric processes are mentioned.
