Electron energy transfer rates for vibrational excitation of N2.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The calculation of the electron density and electron temperature distribution in our ionosphere (from {approx} 150-600 km) requires a knowledge of the various heating, cooling and energy flow processes that occur. The energy transfer from electrons to neutral gases and ions is one of the dominant electron cooling processes in the ionosphere, and the role of vibrationally excited N2 in this is particularly significant.
