Analysis of the positions of nighttime thunderstorms as determined from the detection of optical radiation by satellite OSO-B reveals that ten times as many lightning storms occur over land areas as… (More)
The data from OSO-5 confirm the OSO-2 result that storm complexes at night are chiefly found over land. The North Atlantic Ocean seems to have more lightning storms associated with it than other… (More)
The design, calibration, and operation of the University of Minnesota's experiment on board the satellite OS0-5 are described. The instrument was designed to measure zodiacal light, airglow, and… (More)
A comparison is made between the intensities, as measured by satellite OSO-B, of various discrete light sources on the earth (lightning, city lights, flare gas from oil wells).
A TECHNIQUE has been used with limited success to obtain simultaneous measurement of cosmic radiation at two different altitudes.
A ten-color Fabry photometer was used during Skylab missions SL-2 and SL-3 to measure sky brightness and polarization associated with zodiacal light, background starlight, F region airglow, and… (More)
CONTINUED refinement of data on zodiacal light from OSO–5 (ref. 1) confirms our conclusion2,3 that the absolute value of both the surface brightness and polarisation of the zodiacal cloud varied by… (More)
Measurements over a 4-year period from the satellite OSO-5 have failed to show any temporal variations in the surface brightness and polarization of zodiacal light.
A MODIFICATION of the technique reported earlier1 for making simultaneous measurements at widely separated heights in the atmosphere is described. This promises to be more successful for heavier… (More)
NEWELL has drawn attention to an anomalous increase of about 5° C in the stratospheric temperatures in tropical and mid-latitudes in the Southern Hemisphere since 1963. He suggested a causal… (More)
