Abstract:

Research in the following areas is summarized Interferometric measurements of the 520002 NI-doublet in the aurora observations and experiments pertinent to auroral theories variations in the doppler profile of H-alpha in aurorae emissions in the VLF-band observed near the auroral zone, part I. occurrence of emissions during disturbances, part II. the physical properties of the emissions excitation of A10 bands in the sunlit atmosphere and determination of the temperature from the distribution among the vibrational levels current densities in visual auroras variations in energy spectrum of auroral electrons detected by simultaneous observations with photometer and riometer studies on the excitation of N2 and N2 bands in aurora rapid movements of auroral rays temperature measurements from N2 bands in aurora spectrophotometric investigations of nightglow and aurora and the construction and application of a four-channel photometer for auroral research.
