On the form of noctilucent clouds

  • 22 Accesses

  • 1 Citations

Summary

the possibility of the fine structure wave form of noctilucent clouds being due solely to variations in the dust density arising from the wave motions of the dust particles is discussed, with the conclusion that this state of affairs is unlikely.
