Abstract:

The initial species, partitioning of energy, electron flux spectra and derived quantities resulting from UV photon and electron absorption by atmospheric species are calculated for the altitude range 60 to 500 km and for photon and electron energies between 10 and 300 eV and 14 and 900 eV, respectively. Cross-section curves for electron impact excitation of nitrogen to predissociating states are derived. Author
