Abstract:

Ground-based photometric measurements of auroral and airglow intensities, motions, and spatial and temporal PSDs power spectral densities were made at Chatanika, Alaska in support of DNAAFGL rocket and satellite experiments during the interval September 1977 through January 1979. The latitudinal variations of auroral, airglow,and ionospheric parameters were monitored using a multicolor, meridional scanning photometer. Horizontal motions and scale sizes were monitored using two multiple beam photometers. Data obtained in support of four DNAAFGL rocket experiments, Field Widened Interferometer, WIDEBAND Multi, SWIRSWIRTMA, and EXCEDE II, are presented herein. Data synopsis sheets describing the data obtained for a number of WIDEBAND satellite passes are also included.
