Abstract : A program to perform research combining lidar observations and quantitative modeling of dynamic phenomena and minor species distributions in both the naturally occurring and anthropically perturbed atmosphere. Emphasis on investigation of the environmental effects of the chemical by-products of rocket engine combustion in the stratosphere and the effects of rf ionospheric heaters on the dynamics and minor species distributions in the mesosphere and lower thermosphere.
