Abstract:

A workshop on Natural Charging of Large Space Structures in Near Earth Polar Orbits, sponsored by the Air Force Geophysics Laboratory and Boston College, was held on 14 and 15 September, 1982, at AFGL. Many of the specialists in the area of spacecraft charging problems assembled to discuss the necessity andor possibility of developing realistic, effective codes describing the interaction of low earth orbiting systems with the environment. The workshop consisted of four sessions tutorial lectures on the characteristics of the near-earth environment and its effects on large space structures 2 experiments examining and interpreting spacecraft charging and the environment causing it 3 theoretical interpretation of spacecraft charging and the environment in which it occurs 4 modeling space structures in a charging environment.
