Aeronomy requirements for small orbiting payloads
Small Orbiting Payloads
Upper Atmospheric Phenomena
MetadataShow full item record
Before the development of space tools, aeronomy was supported by ground based observation of upper atmospheric phenomena in the solar system. A very limited number of these phenomena could be documented, with very poor altitude resolution or geographic coverage. As an example of the many aspects which can be investigated from space, the presently sensitive ozone problem is briefly described. One of the many typical small payloads which could be envisaged is briefly described.
