Abstract : Published data on the equatorial airglow are critically reviewed. A number of new results, based primarily on data collected during the IGY, are presented for the oxygen green line and the sodium line. It is shown that the diurnal variation of the green line in equatorial regions is markedly different from that in temperate latitudes. (Author)
