1 Introduction. Atomic oxygen (O) is the critical species in the chemistry and energetics of the mesosphere and lower thermosphere (MLT). Formed by photolysis of molecular oxygen, it carries substantial amounts of chemical potential energy, which is released during exothermic chemical reactions, resulting in large chemical heating rates throughout the MLT (Mlynczak & Solomon, Cited by: Start studying analytical review. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools.

In the upper atmosphere, solar radiation dissociates O2, resulting in relatively large atomic oxygen densities above 80 km, with a peak near 95 km, and increasing dominance compared to other species with increasing altitude; above ~ km, atomic oxygen [O(3P)] is .   On J , the Progress cargo spacecraft 56P was launched from Baikonur to the International Space Station (ISS), carrying EXPOSE-R2, the third ESA (European Space Agency) EXPOSE facility, the second EXPOSE on the outside platform of the Russian Zvezda module, with four international astrobiological experiments into space.

By R. Bourassa, P. Gruenbaum, H. Pippin and J. Gillis. Abstract. Atomic oxygen (AO) fluences and solar exposure have been modeled for selected hardware from the Long Duration Exposure Facility (LDEF). The atomic oxygen exposure was modeled.

MATERIAL SELECTION GUIDELINES TO LIMIT ATOMIC OXYGEN EFFECTS ON SPACECRAFT SURFACES 1. PURPOSE This document provides guidelines in selecting materials for satellites and space platforms, de-signed to operate within the low-Earth orbit (LEO) environment, which limit the effects of atomic oxygen (AO) interactions with spacecraft Size: 2MB.

Pippin's 4 research works with 29 reads, including: Calculated values of atomic oxygen fluences and solar exposure on selected surfaces of LDEF. Although the Long Duration Exposure Facility (LDEF) had exposed materials with a fixed orientation relative to the ambient low-Earth-orbital environment, arrival of atomic oxygen is angularly distributed as a result of the atomic oxygen's high temperature Maxwellian velocity distribution and the LDEF's orbital inclination.

The recently discovered fast hydroxyl‐atomic oxygen relaxation mechanism provided new insight into the mesospheric emission formation. Using a new hydroxyl (OH) model and retrieval algorithm, we obtained atomic oxygen concentration in the nighttime mesosphere and lower thermosphere (MLT) from the SABER OH by: 7.

Rates of production of O(1 D) atoms in the upper atmosphere by photodissociation of O 2, dissociative recombination of O 2 +, NO + and electron impact excitation of O(3 P) have been calculated for low, medium and high levels of solar ions with solar activity, of neutral and ionic composition, electron and neutral temperatures of the upper atmosphere and solar Cited by: 2.

Cross sectional analysis shows atomic oxygen (AO) erosion values of up to m m (1 mil). Greater occurrences of through-thickness cracking and surface microscopy were observed in areas of high solar exposure. Atomic force microscopy (AFM) showed increases in surface microhardeness measurements with increasing solar exposure.
