Abstract:

In support of the upper-atmosphere research program, work was conducted on the design construction and testing of instrumentation for the study of airglow and aurora phenomena. Summary descriptions are given of work performed by rocket instrumentation, ground-based equipment and instruments aboard high-flying aircraft. References are made to indicate where the material is published. Summaries are also presented of papers being prepared on interferometric studies of the lambda 5577A emission temperatures in aurora and of the lambda 10830A helium emission layer in the upper atmosphere. A third paper describes initial work performed on the theory of the F layer. Author
