Thesis advisor, David D. Cleary. This banner text can have markup. These data were obtained by the Spacelab 1 shuttle mission in November, The analysis of the seven spectra was accomplished by comparison of the data with synthetically calculated spectra for the gamma, delta, and epsilon band emissions of nitric oxide.

The tangent ray heights of the measured spectra varied in two kilometer increments from 96 km to : James Lee Bosserman. TORR ET AL.: THERMOSPHERIC NITRIC OXIDE FROM ATLAS 1 17, where the shuttle is orbiting at km, and the line of sight passes through the TRH and on out to km on the far side.

This effective temperature is also shown in Figure An important need for studies of the thermospheric chemistry and dynamics is multispectral information on the emissions over a broad wavelength range. An instrument that has been developed to meet this need is the Imaging Spectrometric Observatory which is currently undergoing integration for flight on the Shuttle Spacelab 1 mission (mid).

Shuttle Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet Spectrometer (SSBUV): The SSBUV experiment, mounted in two Get Away Special (GAS) canisters, was co-manifested with the ATLAS-1 mission.

Abstract. Increases in the solar ultraviolet flux (λ rising solar activity have been larger than anticipated. This increase in UV flux dramatically affects the production of ionization of the various constituents in the thermosphere. In this paper we use measurements of the solar UV flux by.

Spectral and spatial images obtained with the Imaging Spectrometric Observatory on the ATLAS 1 and Spacelab 1 missions are used to study the ultraviolet emissions of nitric oxide in the thermosphere.

By synthetically fitting the measured NO gamma bands, intensities are. Twenty-four Space Shuttle missions were dedicated science missions using Spacelab and countless others utilized components from Spacelab's flight tested hardware components.
