Abstract:

The 26 chapters of this handbook are concerned with atmospheric and ionospheric physical and chemical processes under both natural and disturbed conditions and the effects of disturbances on electromagnetic transmission. Topics covered are the structure, fluid mechanics and aeronomy, and ionospheric energy balance of the natural atmosphere chemical kinetics of the naturally and nuclear perturbed atmosphere data gathering methods based on laboratory experimentation, theoretical analysis, and atmospheric measurements basic energy-level and equilibrium data infrared kinetics of atmospheric radiative processes cross-section data, solar photoionization rate constants, ultraviolet intensities, and solar dissociation of photochemical processes low-energy electron and high-energy heavy-particle collision kinetics charged particle recombination processes electron attachment-detachment processes thermal and non thermal ion-neutral reactions excitation-deexcitation processes radiofrequency absorption and computer modeling of deionization processes. Each chapter contains numerous references.
