Paper Abstract

Airglow measurement is an important method of studying the dynamic processes in the upper atmosphere. In this paper, we will provide a brief review for airglow measuring methods of atmospheric wind, temperature and short-period wave process in the thermosphere and mesopause region. First, we give the measuring principles, application and major measured result of Fabry-Perot optical interferometer used to the measurement of atmospheric wind and temperature. Then, airglow measurements in the mesopause region are discussed, and a brief description of the tilting-filter photometer developed by CSSAR is given. Finally we will give an introduction on the future plane of upper atmospheric optical measurements in China.
