Abstract

Based on self-consistent rocket-borne measurements of temperature, the densities of atomic oxygen and neutral air, and the volume emission of the atmospheric band (762 nm), we examined the one-step and two-step excitation mechanism of O2 for nighttime conditions. Following McDade et al. (1986), we derived the empirical Fitting coefficients, which parameterize the atmospheric band emission O2. This allows us to derive the atomic oxygen concentration from nighttime observations of atmospheric band emission O2. The derived empirical parameters can also be utilized for atmospheric band modeling. Additionally, we derived the fit function and corresponding coefficients for the combined (one- and two-step) mechanism.
