Abstract : The purpose of this work has been to study a number of infrared-active species, produced in the disturbed atmosphere, both experimentally and theoretically. These comprehensive studies will aid the interpretation of existing laboratory and field data. These studies are especially valuable because the existing data base and models have been deficient in their ability to predict the highly non-thermal chemical, physical and radiative properties of the upper atmosphere, particularly under disturbed conditions.
