Abstract : The discussions include a wide variety of topics, including spectrographic methods of observation, made either from rockets or from the ground, radio wave probings of the ionosphere, laboratory experiments dealing with recombination and diffusion, and probable photochemical reactions in the ionosphere and mesosphere. In addition, important remarks on solar physics, solar-terrestrial relationships and collisional and photochemical reactions in the terrestrial atmosphere are also presented. (Author)
