Abstract:

In order to resolve questions as to the dynamical behavior of high- altitude barium releases, a rocket probe payload has been designed and flown involving measurements of electron and ion density, electron temperature, and electric field. Six of these rockets were prepared for firing during the SECEDE II Test Series in January 1971. Some studies have also been made of analytical models for the electron density in a striated barium cloud, aimed at determining the effect of striation superposition on their visibility.
