Abstract : An interpretation of the chemical kinetics of the normal atmosphere at 100 km was made. Using a complete chemical system, the kinetics of each constituent was studied. Rate constants and concentrations were adjusted ntil a logical and self-consistent set of data was obtained. In this way, limits were determined for the values of certain rate constants. (Author)
