Paper Abstract

Under the sponsorship of the Space Division of the National Research Council, Canada is building two wide angle Michelson interferometers for the imaging of upper atmospheric temperatures and winds using the naturally occuring airglow and auroral emissions. The Wide Angle Michelson Doppler Imaging Interferometer (WAMDII) is built to fly on the Space Shuttle. Launch time is at present undeter-mined. The Wind Imaging Interferometer (WINDII) will fly aboard NASA's Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite, expected to be launched in 1991.
