Forbidden Atomic Lines in Auroral Spectra

  • D. R. Bates

Abstract

By way of background information we give in Table 1 the origins of the forbidden multiplets of interest together with representative values of their intensities in an International Brightness Coefficient (IBC) 3 aurora; and we give in Table 2 the excitation energies and the Einstein A transition probabilities. In terms of the intensity of λ5577 Å, the IBC scale, which is logarithmic, runs from 1 kR for IBC 1 to 1000 kR for IBC 4. It is appropriate to mention here that the earliest calibration of the scale was made by Seaton.(1)
