Paper Abstract

We analyzed and systemized the published data on satellite and rocket long-term measurements of the oxygen atom O(3P) (63 μm) and of the СО2 molecule (15 μm) infrared (IR) emissions in the upper atmosphere. We revealed and presented empirical ratios describing the diurnal, seasonal, and latitudinal variations in the intensities of these emissions, their height distribution, as well as their dependence on solar activity. We analyzed photochemical atmospheric processes leading to the emergence of O(3P) (63 μm) and of СО2 (15 μm) emissions in the upper atmosphere.
