Abstract : Data from the One Meter Fastie-Ebert Scanning Spectrometer located at the AFCRL Geopole Station, Thule, Greenland have been catalogued, prepared for scaling and a portion of them scaled and processed on a digital computer to obtain intensities for ten selected spectral emissions in Rayleighs. Some theoretical and practical considerations for the power spectral density computer analysis of the data are presented. A specific approach for processing the data to obtain autocorrelation and power spectral density estimates is proposed. (Author)
