What are auroras? What makes them happen? What do they look like? Where can you see them? Site includes stunning photos and QuickTime movies of the northern lights, and Realaudio interviews with NASA scientists.
Conducts basic theoretical and experimental research in planetary, atmospheric, magnetospheric, and solar physics.
Pages describing the research activities, and employment opportunities (including PhD) within the Group. Work within the group covers micrometeorolgy, cloud microphysics and chemistry, aerosol science, and radiative transfer.
An online database of upper atmosphere, weather, and model data.
GENSPECT is a line-by-line radiative transfer code to calculate gas absorption and emissivity, emission and transmission for a wide range of atmospheric gases. GENSPECT has an online web interface is available as a MATLAB toolbox.
Plans, organizes, and conducts atmospheric and related research programs in collaboration with universities.
These pages outline the work of this group, which is focussed on the study of the atmosphere between about 3 and 90Km above the surface of the earth.
Unified Field Theory explains Auroras Borealis and Australis and suggests an experimental simulation using an iron core container with electric coil wrapping and electron gun.
The online 1976 standard atmosphere calculator computes atmospheric properties like density, temperature, pressure and speed of sound up to 86 kilometers altitude. Graphics and a table generator are included.
Earth's natural electromagnetic radio transmissions.
