Abstract

Today, because of the achievements in rocket engineering, the direct method has become the principal method for studying the atmosphere. Tables of standard atmospheres, summarizing the results of studies of structure and composition, give densities, pressures, temperatures, molecular weights, and other structural parameters up to very high altitudes for a great variety of geophysical conditions: time of day, season, solar cycle, etc. Other atmospheric parameters, including the optical properties of the upper atmosphere, have been studied just as thoroughly.
