Abstract:

The ROSCOE-Radar ambient atmosphere model has been extensively revised to provide a major atmospheric properties and species densities corresponding to either a code-generated or optional user-specified latitude- and season-dependent temperature profile below 120-km altitude, b an increase from 10 to 19 minor species profiles 0, 01d, a1 triangle g, 0 sub 3, N4S, N2D, N2P, NO, NO sub 2, N sub 2 O, CO sub 2, CO, CH sub 4, H sub 2 O, H, AR, and HE, with some of them having complex dependencies on latitude or even geographic position in the case of water below 5-km altitude, local apparent time, fractional season-year, and solar decimetric flux, c optional user-specified water-vapor profile, and d an ionosphere with e, O, NO, O2, and N2 as ionized species more than 90 km.
