22 January 1993 AURIC airglow modules - Phase 1 development and application
Author Affiliations +
The Atmospheric Ultraviolet Radiance Integrated Code's modules have been developed to calculate the 1000-6500 A thermospheric emission spectra and radiances of dayglow, nightglow, twilight, and electron aurora, while also accounting for solar, photoelectron, auroral electron, and chemical excitation processes as well as pure and self absorption and multiple scattering effects. An account is presently given of the overal architecture of the codes; attention is given to the design and implementation of the photoionization and electron flux modules, together with samples of the input data and generated output.
