Abstract:

A three-channel scanning radiometer was launched into the equatorial night sky to obtain atmospheric emissions at 1.0, 1.27, and 1.6 micrometer wavelengths. The combined effect of ACS spin and instrument scan motion provided 22 vertical scans for each of six rocket rotations. Successful launch provided good data on the hydroxyl and oxygen emission bands. Interesting variations in heights of the emission layers were observed. Author
