Abstract : Photographs of chemiluminescent trails that were released in the upper atmosphere by AFCRL were quantatively reduced. The data obtained from two-dimensional isodensity plots were used to calculate the resultant diffusion coefficients at several altitudes from three of these trails. A photographic masking technique was used to remove density variations on the films caused by the sky background. (Author)
