Paper Abstract

An ordinary photochemical model of (O) and (O3) distribution is modified to include additional sources of atomic oxygen formation due to the dissociation by electron and proton impact as well as to the dissociative recombination of ions O2+ and NO+. It is shown that the atomic oxygen density depends linearly on ion production rate in D-region during AA and PCA disturbances. The paper shows that the additional sources of atomic oxygen substantially affect the distribution of ozone on the heights of ionospheric D-region. The calculation of (O) and (O3) density height distribution for the specific AA and PCA disturbances is performed. Results are compared with experimental rocket (O) and (O3) profiles.
