O(1S) Effective Lifetimes
Entry ID: ASAC_43

Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 43
See the link below for public details on this project.

From the abstract of the referenced paper:

Intensity time-series with a 0.05 s time resolution were obtained for the 428 nm N2+ (1NG) band and 558 nm O(1S) line emissions during intervals of rapidly fluctuating auroral intensities at Macquarie Island during 1988. Similar measurements have been ... View entire text

From the referenced paper:

The optical data were collected at Macquarie Island during 1988 with a twin-channel, beam-splitting photometer with interference filters isolating the N2+ (1NG) (0,1) band at 428 nm and the O(1S-1D) line at 558 nm. The photometer was pointed toward the magnetic zenith and has a one ... View entire text
