Part of the Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 51)


There will be very little material discussed in this lecture that has not already found its way into the literature. Therefore, I shall content myself with the briefest meaningful review of the data obtained by the horizon scanning 5577 Å airglow photometer flown aboard OGO 6 and the interpretations we have put upon them. Most of my fresh remarks will have to do with the limitations in these interpretations and will amount to a list of caveats and comments about the meaning of the results we have obtained.
