About this book

This publication contains 21 papers presented at two symposia during the thirty-first COSPAR Scientific Assembly held in Birmingham, UK, during 1996. Papers reflect the following symposia themes: permanent changes in the ionosphere and middle atmosphere; electrodynamics of the low and subauroral middle atmosphere. For the first time, this single volume assembles a comprehensive collection of papers dealing with the long-term trends of various parameters in the Earth's near space environment, including new and emerging areas of research.


Permanent Changes in the Ionosphere and Middle Atmosphere. Preface (D.K. Chakrabarty). Long-term decrease of mesospheric temperature, 1963-1995, inferred from radiowave reflection heights (J. Taubenheim et al. ). Long-term trends in the meso- and thermosphere (J. Bremer). The secular changes in noctilucent cloud occurence: study of a 31-year sequence to clarify the causes (M. Gadsden). Mesopause scenario on doubling of CO 2 (D.K. Chakrabarty). Electrodynamics of the Low and Subauroral Middle Atmosphere. Preface (S.P. Gupta). Radon and metallic aerosols emanation before strong earthquakes and their role in atmosphere and ionosphere modification (S.A. Pulinets et al. ). Middle atmospheric electrodynamics at low latitude over India (S.C. Chakravarty et al. ). On unequal distributions of positive and negative ions in the upper stratosphere (D.K. Chakrabarty). Features of E region irregularities at the magnetic equator and in its vicinity (S.P. Gupta).
