The morphology of oxygen greenline dayglow emission

  title={The morphology of oxygen greenline dayglow emission},
  author={Sandeep Tyagi and Varinderjit Singh},
In this study, the morphology of the oxygen greenline dayglow emission is presented. The volume emission rate pro®les are obtained by using Solomon's glow model. The glow model is updated in terms of recent cross sections, reaction rate coecients and quantum yield of greenline emission. Throughout most of the thermosphere the modelled and observed emission rates are in reasonably good agreement. In the region between 98 and 120 km, the modelled emission rates are substantially higher (about a… CONTINUE READING
