Abstract:

The report summarizes efforts in developing apparatus for optical observations of barium releases in the Secede series and for optical detection of ionospheric electron heating produced by a high-powered ground based transmitter. Progress in analysis of the Secede and Ionospheric Modification data is described and the results are discussed. Analysis of Fabry-Perot interferometer data from the Secede III barium release series in Alaska, 1969 is presented and the improved Fabry-Perot apparatus developed for the Secede II series at Eglin, Florida, 1971 is described. The results obtained with our spatial-scanning photometer used in conjunction with the Boulder Ionospheric Modification Experiment in 1970 to detect electron heating in the F region is presented.
