Abstract : Selected spectral emission data from the One Meter Fastie-Ebert Scanning Spectrometer located at the AFCRL Geopole Station, Thule, Greenland have been scaled and analyzed. The autocorrelation power spectral density and diurnal variation of the emission have been examined. Linear correlations have been performed between emissions by month and UT hour, by season and by total data set. Linear correlations between emissions and selected geomagnetic parameters have also been performed. The indeterminacy of results due to the occurrence of zeros in the data is discussed. (Author)
