Abstract : Research described in the report pertains to the effects of nuclear detonations in the upper atmosphere. Experiments described include dissociative attachment to hot oxygen, reactions between atmospheric ions and sodium atoms, collisions of sodium ions with ozone, internal energy effects in ion-molecule reactions, reactions between atmospheric ions and metal atoms using magnetically confined afterglows, electron impact dissociation of oxygen and carbon dioxide, effect of internal excitation on dissociative ionization, and dissociative attachment to water-clustered molecules.
