THE GENERATION OF INFRARED RADIATION IN THE UPPER ATMOSPHERE BY CHEMICAL SEEDING.
Final rept., pt. 2,

Pagination or Media Count:
An assessment has been made of the feasibility of generating infrared radiation at high altitudes by chemical means. The various chemical species present in the ionosphere have been examined and an estimate has been made of the total energy which could be obtained through their interactions. Practical conversion of this energy into infrared radiation by means of chemical catalysis has been considered and a method by which this may be carried out evaluated. The results of this evaluation indicate that direction in which any further investigations might well be conducted. Author
