Empirical modeling of the geomagnetic variation in the thermosphere by Jack W Slowey( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper briefly summarizes the development of empirical models of the geomagnetic variation in the thermosphere and exosphere. The earliest models were based exclusively on the results of satellite drag analysis. Although they present a much simplified picture of what is an extremely complex phenomenon, these models are still valid in many applications and remain in wide use. They do, however, leave much to be desired with respect to short-term accuracy and are quite inadequate in many cases in the way in which they depict local conditions. More recent observational data, particularly those from satellite-borne gas analyzers, have resulted in a considerable improvement in empirical models of the geomagnetic variation. One such model and its limitations are described in some detail. Some of the problems relating to the development of improved models in the future are also examined
Atmospheric density determination from low height satellites by Arnold S Bramson( Book )

2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report describes the third in a series of computer programs designed to determine atmospheric density from an analysis of satellite observations. The particular approach being reported upon consists of a numerical integration procedure combined with a differential correction scheme where discrepancies between computed and observed satellite position and velocity are reconciled by adjusting the assumed atmospheric model, thereby yielding corrected or refined density data. An important advantage of this technique is its applicability to satellites entering the decay stage where the effects of atmospheric drag are considerable and where a relatively short time span of observations may be available. Numerical results obtained from the program are presented along with an interpretation and an evaluation of these computer results. Finally, a complete user's manual is included as a separate appendix. (Author)
Global frequency distribution of exospheric temperature by Jack W Slowey( Book )

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The distribution of exospheric temperature under all conditions of solar and geomagnetic activity and of spatial location was determined for two different models of the earth's thermosphere and exosphere. The two models were the 1971 Jacchia model and the U.S. Standard Atmosphere Supplements, 1966. Data from the past 12 solar cycles were used to determine the contribution of solar activity to the distributions. The contribution of geomagnetic activity was based on the distribution of geomagnetic activity for solar cycle 20. The spatial contribution was determined by analysis of the diurnal variation in exospheric temperature as given by the particular model. The resulting distributions indicate a mean exospheric temperature of approximately 900 K for either model. (Author)
