Abstract:

This volume contains models and data of the ionosphere and upper atmosphere. The ionosphere section includes electron density profiles, plasma temperature profiles, ion composition, collision frequencies, ionospheric drifts and comparisons with the International Reference Ionosphere IRI. Computer programs and tables are contained an annexes. The upper atmosphere section includes middle atmosphere temperature and wind models, a tropical reference atmosphere and ozore reference models. Recent advances in upper atmospheric structure are reviewed. There are empirical lower thermosphere models and properties of the polar energy source and associated atmospheric perturbations. Three dimensional, time dependent, theoretical thermospheric models are presented.
