Abstract:

Magnetometer data from more than a dozen ground stations near the Ft. Churchill part of the Auroral Zone have been obtained and analyzed for the AEOLUS rocket launches in April 1975. The magnetically active launch of 10 April showed considerable activity starting to the west of, and moving into, the Ft. Churchill area. The quiet launch of 21 April showed little activity. The Auroral launch of 25 April was accompanied by magnetic activity, though not as intense as that of 10 April. Electrojet calculations show that conditions on 10 April were very promising for high altitude wave generation that might be observable in the chemical release data. Author
