Abstract:

Ultraviolet remote sensing of the ionosphere - The goal of this project is to faithfully reconstruct ionospheric profiles from O - e- recombination emissions in the far ultraviolet region of the electromagnetic spectrum as observed from polar orbitting space platforms. The nighttiine ionsophere - Remote sensing of the nighttime ionosphere is a more straightforward process because of the absence of the complications brought about by daytime solar ultraviolet radiation. This, therefore marks the starting point of the present investigation.
