Abstract:

This technical report describes a a preliminary experimental investigation of electron attachment and detachment in ozone and b an experimental study of the temperature dependence of electron-positive ion recombination in atmospheric gases. The rate coefficients for these processes are needed for the prediction and analysis of the electrical behavior of the earths atmosphere in the presence of natural and artificially induced ionization.
