The kinetic mechanisms responsible for the excitation of the first positive and first negative emission of nitrogen have been investigated in a re- examination of previously reported shock-tube measurements of the non- equilibrium radiation for these systems. The rate coefficients of the collisional quenching reactions were found to be given by empirical expressions over the approximate temperature range 6000 - 14000K.
